One killed, two injured in shooting at Riverside gas station

One person was killed and two injured in a shooting at a Riverside gas station early Saturday, police said.

Police responded to the scene in the 3900 block of Tyler Avenue about 12:40 a.m. after getting a report of multiple gunshots at the USA gas station, according to a statement from the Riverside Police Department.

One person was pronounced dead at the scene and two others were transported to a local hospital, where they were listed in stable condition, authorities said. Police have not released a description of the suspect, but said the victims were apparently standing outside the gas station when the suspect approached them on foot and opened fire.

In a separate incident Saturday morning in Riverside, an employee of a medical marijuana dispensary was injured in a shootout with would-be robbers at the Riverside Cannabis Club Marijuana Dispensary.


Officers responded to the scene about 3:10 a.m. after an unknown number of people entered the Riverside Cannabis Club Marijuana Dispensary intending to rob it, and exchanged shots with an employee who confronted them, authorities said. The suspects fled and the employee was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.
