Authorities Saturday were looking for a suspect in connection with the homicide of a 17-year-old boy in Jurupa Valley.

Deputies responded to an assault with a deadly weapon call at 7:54 p.m. Thursday in the 4000 block of Avon Street, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

When first responders arrived, they found the teen suffering from traumatic injuries, sheriff’s officials said. The victim was taken to a hospital where he later died.

“Investigative leads are currently being worked and there is no threat to the public. This appears to be an isolated incident between the suspect(s) and the victim,” the sheriff’s department said.
