Deputies from the Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station responded to the scene around 9:45 p.m., after receiving reports of a shooting, Riverside Sheriff’s Sergeant Steve Brosche has since reported.

When deputies arrived, they located two men who had been shot. 

One of those victims was rushed to Riverside University Health System’s Trauma Center in Moreno Valley where he later succumbed to his injuries and passed away.

A Riverside County Sheriff-Coroner release identified the victim as Giovannie Saucedo, 30, of Moreno Valley. A coroner’s release indicated he was pronounced deceased about two hours after the shooting, at 11:34 p.m.

The second victim, also 30-year-old man, was transported to a local hospital and is expected to survive his injuries, according to Brosche.

As their investigation was getting underway, deputies learned of a third victim, a 27-year-old male, who had also been shot during the same incident. That victim was transported to a local hospital by witnesses and is also expected to survive his injuries, said Brock.

The suspect(s) fled the scene prior to deputies’ arrival and had not been located as of the sheriff’s initial release of information.
