Deputies from the Southwest Sheriff’s Station and other emergency personnel were dispatched to the home around 1:15 p.m. after receiving the report of a shooting, Riverside Sheriff’s Sergeant Ben Ramirez reported today.

When officials arrived, they found a seventeen-year-old boy suffering from a gunshot wound inside the home. The critically injured victim was rushed to an area hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries and passed away.

Deputies secured the scene and began interviewing witnesses to the deadly shooting. Their initial investigation revealed the victim was shot inside the residence by another juvenile, who has been identified, according to Ramirez.

“Based on initial witness statements and evidence at the scene, the Central Homicide Unit was requested and assumed the investigation,” the Sergeant explained, saying that neither the victim nor the shooter will be identified at this time.

Officials have not yet said if the shooting was believed to be intentional or accidental and have not specified how or if the pair of juveniles were related.

The sheriff’s investigation is continuing, and no further details have been released.
