Within the past couple of days, a video depicting a violent physical altercation at the Harada Heritage Park in Eastvale began circulating on social media. The video clearly depicts numerous male and female adults engaged in a physical altercation, which ended up in a shooting with one person shot suffering a non-life-threatening injury. At the time of the initial investigation, it was believed the shooting was possibly gang related; however, no suspects were initially arrested or identified.
The deputy assigned to the parks within the city of Eastvale was made aware of the video. In an effort to establish the identity of the victims, potential witnesses and suspects deputies assigned to the Jurupa Valley Special Enforcement Team (SET) in conjunction with the parks deputy immediately assumed the investigation. The suspect was later positively identified as 18-year old Alprentice Caleb Young, resident of Eastvale.
On June 17, 2020, about 1700 hours, SET deputies observed Young traveling westbound on 65th St. near Sumner Ave. A felony vehicle stop was conducted. Young was contacted and was in possession of a loaded firearm.
Overnight search warrants were executed in the 13500 block of Gray Hawk Ct. and the 6500 block of Acey St, in Eastvale. Multiple items of evidence related to the shooting, including a firearm were seized. Efforts to locate additional suspect as well as other persons of interest in this investigation are ongoing. Young was booked into Robert Presley Detention Center for assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a loaded firearm.
Anyone with information pertaining to this investigation is encouraged to contact Deputy Parham (951) 955-2600.
