A man suspected of fatally shooting two women, whose bodies were found inside a car in Riverside Wednesday morning, was taken into custody when arriving officers found he was still at the scene.
Police received a call about 12:11 a.m. from a woman who said her brother had just shot two women in the 6000 block of Alhambra Avenue, a Riverside Police Department spokesperson at the scene said.
Arriving officers not only found the two victims but also discovered the man suspected of shooting them, and the sister who reported the crime, were still at the scene.
“This isn’t something we come across too often, where you have the person still here when police are called regarding a shooting or a murder,” Police Department Officer Ryan Railsback said.
Police arrested the man -- who apparently still had the gun when officers arrived at the scene -- after questioning the man, according to Railsback.
The officer identified the suspect as 23-year-old Daniel Garcia of Riverside. He was booked on suspicion of murder.
Garcia's relationship to the victims was unknown.
One of the victims was identified by family as Miranda Duran. The other woman has not been identified.
Their bodies were discovered in the driver and passenger seats of the vehicle, police said. A preliminary investigation indicated that Garcia shot both of the victims while they were inside the vehicle, police said.
Investigators are searching the area for witnesses, Railsback said.
