On Tuesday, September 14, 2023, about 3:00 p.m., deputies responded to the 23900 block of Sunnymead Boulevard to a report of a man with a gun at the gas station. Deputies arrived and discovered two men, Nathan Ramirez, 22-year-old of Moreno Valley, and Dominic Ward, 35-year-old of Moreno Valley, were fighting at the gas station. During the fight, Ramirez produced a handgun, pointed it at Ward, and threatened to kill Ward. Ward ran from Ramirez, who returned to his vehicle and drove away before deputies arrived.

Both Ramirez and Urich were booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center in Riverside without incident.
