An investigation was under way Wednesday to identify the suspect who gunned down a 27-year-old man on a Corona street.

Stephen Desio of Corona was fatally shot just after 1 a.m. Saturday near the intersection of Cottonwood Court and Fullerton Avenue, according to the Corona Police Department.

Sgt. Jason Waldon said patrol officers were sent to the location to investigate reports of shots fired and found Desio in the roadway.

Corona Fire Department paramedics arrived moments later and pronounced the victim dead at the scene.

Waldon said the deadly shooting appears to have been “isolated” and not a random attack, with homicide detectives working to sort out details and find “potential witnesses” to confirm the circumstances and the suspect’s identity.

Anyone with information was encouraged to contact the police department’s Detective Bureau at 951-279-3662.
