Riverside County Sheriff's Department Press Release

Reporting Deputy: Sergeant Alfredo Medina

File # MV222870312


On October 14, 2022, deputies from the Moreno Valley Station responded to a residence in the 13000 block of Day Street in the city of Moreno Valley after receiving multiple calls of hearing a sound similar to an explosion. Deputies arrived and found three juveniles with varying degrees of injuries consistent with those caused by fireworks. Deputies rendered first aid while waiting for paramedics to arrive.

Once paramedics from CalFire and American Medical Response arrived, all three juveniles were transported to an area hospital with moderate to severe injuries.

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Hazardous Device Team responded to the location and determined an illegal “mortar” type firework had been lit and exploded, causing injuries to the juveniles. At this time, the location has been deemed safe and there is no additional public safety concern.

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department wants to remind the public that illegal fireworks can cause serious injuries and all fireworks are illegal in the city of Moreno Valley.
