Police responding to reports of gunfire arrived at the home shortly after 8 p.m. Sunday, where they found the boy, said Lt. Larry Gonzalez. He died later at Riverside Community Hospital, Gonzalez said. The boy, whose name has not been released, was one of two children and several adults inside the house when the shooting occurred, Gonzalez said. The family moved to Riverside two weeks ago from Orange County and has no apparent gang connections, said Sgt. Leon Phillips. “It appears the house was targeted, but these people have no connection to anything, so it’s bizarre,” Phillips said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
