A search was underway Wednesday for the person who fatally shot a 39-year-old Jurupa Valley man on the street.

Richard Allen Cervantes of Jurupa Valley was gunned down at about 10:30 p.m. Monday in the 4000 block of Riverview Drive, near Mission Boulevard, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

Sgt. Steve Brosche said deputies were called to the area to investigate reports of an assault and discovered Cervantes mortally wounded.

Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene a short time later.

A possible motive was not disclosed, and it was unclear whether the victim was walking through the area or near his home.

Brosche said the shooter fled before deputies arrived, and a description was not available.

Central Homicide Unit detectives are working to track down leads. Anyone with information was asked to contact the investigative team at 951-955-2777.
