On Friday, February 21, 2020, about 3:25 PM, deputies from the Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s Station responded to a report of an Assault with a Deadly Weapon in the area of Maggie Lane and Mayfield Street, located in the city of Eastvale. Upon arrival, deputies located two female juveniles who sustained minor and non-life-threatening injuries. The preliminary investigation revealed the victims were walking home from school when a white, 4-door sedan with front end collision damage drove past them. The vehicle was occupied by four black male adults, who pointed a realistic looking pistol, then fired shots at them from the vehicle. The weapon used was not a firearm but possibly an airsoft or pellet pistol. The projectile that struck both victims left superficial marks on their body. The vehicle and suspects fled the area prior to deputies arrival.
On Sunday, February 23, 2020, deputies from the Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s station conducted a follow-up investigation and located and arrested 18-year-old, Eastvale resident, Markus Robert Zurawski. He was booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center.
