Riverside police say they are still looking for the person who shot and killed a man Sunday night, June 25, at a gas station.

The incident happened at the 76 gas station at the intersection of Madison Street and Indian Avenue around 9:20 p.m.

The Press Enterprise reports according to Riverside Police Officer Ryan Railsback, police are trying to figure out exactly what the circumstances were that caused the shooting. Reportedly there weren’t any altercations that occurred prior to the incident.

Officer Railsback said Monday, “No one is in custody,” and went on to say, “We are still reviewing evidence and possibly some video.”

As of now, the name of the victim has not been released.

Police say that the shooting happened in the back corner of the gas station near a tire pump, and a bicycle with a cart attached was found near the scene.

According to witnesses, police and firefighters performed CPR on the victim who was then loaded into an ambulance and taken to Riverside Community Hospital, where he reportedly died at 11 p.m., Lt. Dan Hoxmeier said.

There were social media posts that said an officer fired his weapon, but according to Riverside police Lt. Dwayne May, the incident was not an officer-involved shooting.

Riverside police are asking that anyone with information that may help them find the shooter calls either Detective Mike O’Boyle 951-353-7213 or Detective Dave Smith at 951-353-7103.
