A 26-year-old man was shot to death in Moreno Valley, and the killer remained at large Monday.

Alfredo Salazar of Menifee was fatally shot Sunday night in the 22000 block of Adrienne Avenue, near Elsworth Street, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

Sgt. Rick Espinoza said patrol deputies were sent to the location about 10:30 p.m. to investigate reports of shots fired and quickly learned that a man suffering from gunshot wounds — later identified as Salazar — had been taken by car to nearby Riverside University Medical Center.

The victim succumbed to his injuries as hospital staff attempted life-saving measures, according to Espinoza.

There was no word on the circumstances behind the shooting, which is being investigated by the sheriff’s Central Homicide Unit, and no suspect description was released.

Anyone with information was asked to contact investigators at 951-955-2777.
