A 24-year-old man is in custody in connection with a murder last month in San Jacinto, authorities said Friday.
Deputies from the Riverside County Sheriffs’ Department’s San Jacinto Station responded at 5:50 p.m. on Nov. 5 to a call of an assault with a deadly weapon in the 100 block of Jordan Avenue and upon their arrival found a man in the street suffering from a gunshot wound, said Sgt. Ed Baeza.
The victim was taken to a hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
Diego Ernesto Brane of San Jacinto, who is in police custody on an unrelated charge, was identified as the suspect in the murder on Tuesday and is facing homicide and firearms charges, Baeza said.
Anyone with information regarding this investigation was asked to call the Central Homicide Unit at 951-203-2474 or Sgt. Anthony Pelato of the Hemet Sheriff’s Station’s Investigation Bureau at 951-791-3400.
