A man fatally shot on a Riverside street was identified Saturday as a 40-year-old resident of the city.

Keith Allen was fatally wounded at about 4:40 a.m. Friday near the intersection of Commerce and Fourth streets, according to the Riverside County coroner’s office.

Riverside Police Department Officer Ryan Railsback said the victim was shot several times near a business and stumbled toward the entrance before collapsing.

An employee spotted the man lying on the ground and called 911, Railsback said. Paramedics arrived moments later and pronounced him dead at the scene at about 6 a.m.

A suspect in the crime has not yet been identified, according to Railsback.

Anyone with information was urged to contact the police department’s Robbery-Homicide Unit at 951-353-7134, or send details via email to rpdtips@riversideca.gov.
