Authorities Thursday identified a suspect in an ongoing homicide investigation of a man killed in Jurupa Valley.

Erik D. Martinez, 29, is wanted in connection of a killing in Jurupa Valley by Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

A social media post made by the sheriff’s department shared a photo of Martinez and described him as being 5 feet, 8 inches tall, 250 pounds and as having black hair and brown eyes.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to a possible carjacking call around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday in the 9000 block of Mission Boulevard in Jurupa Valley and found a man suffering from multiple injuries who later died.

Sgt. Ed Baeza did not provide details regarding the victims’ age or nature of his injuries, but the death was determined to be a homicide. It was also unclear where exactly the man was located.

The victims’ name was withheld pending notification of family.

Martinez supposedly fled the scene prior to the deputies’ arrival.

Anyone with information regarding the investigation was encouraged to call 951-892-1605.
