Body Located in Victorville Sparks Homicide Investigation

VICTORVILLE-( The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Homicide Detail is investigating the circumstances surrounding a body located inside a silver sedan near Eto Camino Road and Barranca Way. The vehicle was left running with headlights on when the body of the deceased person was located Wednesday night.

Neighbors told Victor Valley News that the woman was trying to leave when she was shot by a male believed to be her boyfriend.

Just before the discovery of what multiple unconfirmed reports indicate is the body of a deceased female, multiple calls were made to 911 reporting gunshots heard. These calls came in at around 9:15 p.m. and also just before 10:20 p.m.  Authorities said that there was a gathering in the area earlier on Wednesday night and there have been ongoing problems in that area.

Homicide detectives were called to the scene at around 10:20 p.m. and soon after the area was taped off with caution tape. Homicide investigators arrived on scene just before 1:00 a.m. according to witnesses.

It is unclear at this time if any arrests have been made. The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department was not immediately available for comment, information will be updated as it is received.
