Fatal shooting at local hotel

On Saturday, October 5th, at approximately 12:45AM, City of Hemet Police officers responded to 5 shots fired at the Travelodge motel located in the 2600 block of W Florida Ave, Hemet.

Hemet Police Officers located a male gunshot victim.  Though AMR medics responded as quickly as police could clear the area, victim Nathaniel “Nate D” Houston was pronounced dead at the scene of the crime.

The suspect is said to be a light-skinned adult black male wearing a red shirt, black hoodie and black pants.

The alleged assailant was last seen running away from the scene. Onlookers said that Houston, a resident of Hemet, was having an argument across the street, possibly with the assailant, when he was followed and gunned down.
