PERRIS – Deputies arrested a subject for attempted murder, after the man allegedly shot at a victim who was sitting inside their car Wednesday, Dec 7. The shooting happened near the intersection of A and 6th Streets in Perris Tuesday, Dec. 6.
After Deputies conducted an investigation they arrested Demarion Marquel Trammel, 20, of Perris, for attempted murder, carrying a concealed firearm in a vehicle and being a felon in possession of ammunition, according to Riverside Sheriff’s Sergeant Curt Harris.
The investigation began when deputies assigned to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Perris Station responded to a shooting at the location about 5:40 p.m.
Their investigation revealed an unknown suspect, later identified as Tramell, had attempted to shoot another man while the victim was sitting inside his own vehicle. The victim was not struck by the gunfire.
During their investigation, deputies developed evidence that Tramell was involved in the shooting.
Deputies located Tramell inside his vehicle the following day and they detained him for further investigation. During a subsequent search, deputies discovered that Tramell was in possession of a concealed handgun and ammunition.
“Further investigation yielded evidence of Trammel’s involvement in the shooting,” Harris explained.
Deputies arrested Tramell and he was booked into the Southwest Detention Center. Other than the discovery of the handgun and ammunition, sheriff’s officials did not specify what they located that implicated Trammel in the attempted murder.
