On Monday, July 31, 2023, at 9:27 a.m., deputies from the Moreno Valley Sheriff Station responded to a domestic disturbance in the 16000 block of Kensington Place in the City of Moreno Valley. The victim told dispatch that the suspect, Gerardo Martin, was destroying the house and was armed with a shotgun. Deputies arrived and located all family members standing outside the residence and determined Gerardo was the sole occupant inside the residence.

Investigators from the Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station responded and assumed the investigation. The investigation revealed the suspect had threatened the victim with the shotgun two days prior. The victim felt threatened and believed Gerardo was going to shoot him.
