The Riverside City Council voted Tuesday, Oct. 10, to offer a $10,000 reward for information leading to the identification and apprehension of those responsible for the slaying of a 27-year-old man shot to death near a bank ATM machine, according to a police news release.

Two suspects approached victim Daniel Dean, of Yucaipa, after he used the Chase Bank ATM at 10355 Magnolia Ave., and one of the suspects shot the victim while he was seated in the driver’s seat of his locked vehicle, according to the news release.

He was found at about 4:28 a.m. Sept. 1 in the bank parking lot near the Galleria at Tyler.

The vehicle had multiple bullet strikes in the driver’s door and window, and despite CPR efforts, Dean did not survive.

Dean was newly engaged and is survived by a 2-year-old daughter.

One suspect is described as a black male between age 19 and 24, 5-feet, 9-inches to 6-feet tall, thin build with dark, short hair.

Detectives believe offering a reward may entice witnesses to come forward with information, a council staff report stated.

Investigators ask that anyone with information to directly contact Detective Jim Brandt at 951-353-7137 or Detective Mike Medici at 951-353-7104.

Information may be left anonymously through the department’s tip line at 951-353-7208 or by email to

A Police Department Facebook post added, “We kindly ask the public to not identify the suspect publicly through social media.”
