A 57-year-old man was shot dead just south of Nuevo, but it was unclear Tuesday, August 9, whether any suspects had been identified.
Darryl Williams of Romoland was shot dead around 2 p.m. Monday at block 24300 Gunther Road, near Mountain Avenue, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.
Sergeant Ben Ramirez said a patrol deputy was called to the scene to investigate reports of a shooting and found Williams seriously injured. The victim was pronounced dead on the spot.
A possible motive for the attack was not disclosed.
Detectives were called in and took over the investigation, according to Ramirez.
He did not say whether the attacker had been identified, or whether investigators were actively looking for someone.
Anyone with information about the death is asked to call the Perris sheriff’s office at 951-210-1000.
