A gunman who fatally shot a 44-year-old man in Homeland remained at large Monday, with no clues as to the assailant’s identity.

Saul Jimenez Aguilar of Menifee was gunned down Friday in the 25000 block of Echo Valley Road, near Sweet Water Lane, in the unincorporated community that sits between Hemet and Menifee, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

Sgt. Steve Brosche said patrol deputies were called to the location about noon that day to investigate reports of a shooting and discovered Aguilar dead near a residence. The shooter had already fled.

There was no word on a possible motive.

Brosche said Central Homicide Unit detectives took over the investigation and are working to develop leads.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the unit at 951-955-2777.
