On Friday, October 11, 2019, at 8:20 PM, deputies from Perris Station responded to a report of a woman shot at a residence on the 20000 block of Rider Street, Mead Valley. Deputies arrived and located the woman, deceased, inside the residence.
At 8:57 PM, officers from the California Highway Patrol requested assistance at the scene of a single vehicle traffic collision at the intersection of Old Elsinore Road, and Aloha Street, in Mead Valley. CHP advised, the adult male driver of the vehicle was found deceased inside from an apparent gunshot wound and not the result of the collision. Deputies between both locations determined the homicide and the collision scene were related.
Based on the circumstances, the Sheriff’s Central Homicide Unit responded to the scene and assumed the investigation. It was determined by investigators, the adult female and the adult male was in spousal relationship and the two incidents were a murder, suicide. Neither of decedent’s identities will be released until next of kin are located and notified.
The Riverside County Sheriff's Department encourages anyone with information regarding this incident to contact Central Homicide Investigator Stoyer at (951) 955-2777, or Perris Station Investigator Rooker at (951) 210-1000.
