A 27-year-old man accused of shooting a man in Coachella was behind bars Friday.
Eduardo Lopez of Coachella was arrested Thursday and booked into the Byrd Detention Center in Murrieta on suspicion of attempted murder and held on $1 million bail, according to jail records.
The investigation dates back to Feb. 15, when deputies responded to a shooting call in the 49-300 block of Grapefruit Boulevard, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.
Sgt. Mariano Matos III said deputies found a man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
The severity of his injuries was not clear and his condition was not known. His name was not immediately released.
Investigators identified Lopez as one of the suspects involved, and arrested him in the area of Avenue 50 and Polk Street in Coachella Thursday night, but did not provide a motive.
Lopez’s criminal history, if any, was unclear.
