**Update**  Homicide Investigation 

On Thursday, November 15th, 2018, at approximately 10:33 pm, officers received a call about a man unresponsive in a vehicle on Dianthus east of Alder. Officers arrived and found a black, Ford, Escape in in front of a residence with a male suffering from a gunshot wound to the arm and torso.  Medics arrived and transported the victim to a local hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.

Preliminary information indicates the victim left a business in the area of Sierra/Merrill.  At this time we believe the victim was followed from the location and the shooting took place in the area of Merrill and Tamarind.  The victim drove to a family member’s house on Dianthus where he lost consciousness.

We’re seeking the public’s help in determining what led up to the assault and if anyone has information on this investigation.  We’re asking residents and businesses in the area of the assault to provide surveillance footage that may help in the case.

Anyone with surveillance footage in the below areas is urged to contact Detective Stewart at (909) 350-7725

Surveillance footage needed from Thursday November 15th from 10:20 pm – 10:45 pm.  Between Sierra Ave & Tamarind Ave and Randalll & Merrill
