Riverside Man Killed During Home Invasion Robbery

Riverside, Ca-  On Wednesday August 18, 2004 at 12:38 A.M. Riverside Police Officers responded to a residence in the 9800 block of Primrose Drive after residents reported hearing a gunshot and a female screaming in the area. When officers arrived they contacted an adult female who told them that her boyfriend had been shot when two armed men forced their way into her residence and demanded money. The female led officers to the backyard where they found a male adult with at least one gunshot wound to his upper body. The male was transported via ambulance to Riverside Community Hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

Witnesses said they saw two white males running from the residence before leaving the area in a dark colored compact vehicle.

Anyone with information related to this investigation is urged to contact Detective James Brandt 951-320-8027 or Detective Jay Greenstein at 951-320-8058.
