Steven Madrid

On Monday, May 13, 2019, at approximately 7:39 p.m., deputies responded to the 4000 block of Leigh Street, in the City of Jurupa Valley regarding a shooting at the location. Deputies arrived within minutes and learned the suspect, later identified as Steven Madrid, 53-year-old resident of San Bernardino, arrived at a residence, got into a verbal altercation with the victim and left the location. A couple hours later, Madrid came back to the location. A witness observed Madrid walk up to the victim’s vehicle and fire several bullets from a .22 caliber firearm into the rear window of the victim’s vehicle. The vehicle was unoccupied at the time of the shooting. Madrid fled the location and his whereabouts were unknown.  

Investigators assigned to the Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s Station assumed the investigation and discovered Madrid was known to live at a residence in the 1300 block of Walnut Street, in the City of San Bernardino. The Major Crimes Unit (MCU) was notified and coordinated a search regarding the apprehension efforts of Madrid. On May 14, 2019, a search warrant was served at Madrid’s residence by the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department’s SWAT team and the Major Crimes Unit. Madrid was located at the residence and taken into custody without an injury to any civilians or law enforcement personnel. Madrid was booked into the Riverside County Jail. 

The investigation revealed this was an isolated incident and it was determined there is no threat to the public. This is still an active investigation. Anyone with information pertaining to this investigation is encouraged to contact Investigator Contreras at the Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s Station by calling (951) 955-2600.
