Moreno Valley Man's Death Ruled Homicide, Suspects Arrested in Las VegasSource: Riverside County Sheriff

A Moreno Valley man's death has been deemed a homicide after a thorough investigation led authorities to arrest two suspects in Las Vegas, as stated in a recent press release from the Riverside County Sheriff's Department. The victim, now identified as Roshadd Johnson, 41, battled for his life before succumbing to gunshot wounds from an incident that occurred in late January.

Determined to bring promptly those responsible to justice, the Central Homicide Unit identified and located the duo involved in Johnson's murder. Tatiana Tene Parks, 34, of San Bernardino, and Michael Dwight Harris, 34, of North Las Vegas, were apprehended by the Las Vegas Metro Police, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department. Clad in the evidence of their alleged crimes, Harris faces a murder charge, while Parks stands accused as an accessory.

The investigation has navigated through complex corridors of testimony and evidence, ushering a sense not just of an ending, but of a bleak awakening to the violence shadowing our streets. Even as these arrests mark a significant milestone, authorities assert that the probe is far from concluded. Further information is encouraged to be directed to Investigator A. McCracken of the Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station or Investigator Gilbert of the Central Homicide Unit.

The initial call to law enforcement painted the grim scene: a shooting at a residence on Red Mahogany Drive in Moreno Valley, as documented in a January 28 police report. Witnesses described the suspect as an adult male in his 20s with curly brown hair, last seen wearing dark attire. The suspect had managed to slip away before deputies could intersect his path, leaving detectives to piece together the narrative of a night torn asunder by violence and loss.
