On December 26, 2020, at about 4:01 a.m., deputies from the Lake Elsinore Station were dispatched to a report of a shooting at a residence in the 37000 block of Calle de Lobo, La Cresta. Upon arrival, deputies made contact with two uninjured male residents. They were directed inside where deputies found four males with gunshot wounds. Two males had succumbed to their wounds, and two males were transported to a local hospital, also suffering from gunshot wounds. Deputies secured the area as a crime scene and investigators from the Lake Elsinore Station responded. The Central Homicide Unit also responded and assumed the investigation.

The investigation determined this to be a botched home invasion robbery, involving the suspects and residents to have exchanged gunfire. One of the surviving males and one of the deceased males were determined to be suspects who forced entry into the residence and began assaulting one of the occupants inside, leading to the shooting. At least one additional suspect fled the residence and drove away in an unknown make vehicle.

The identity of the two deceased males will not be released, pending notification to next of kin. The investigation is currently on-going and no further information will be released at this time. If anyone has information regarding this investigation, they are encouraged to call Investigator Stites at the Lake Elsinore Sheriff Station 951-245-3300 or Investigator Button with the Central Homicide Unit at 951-955-2777.
