BOOKING PHOTO RELEASED: Man Accused of Sidewalk Killing in Redlands

Gilbert Phillip Moreno was arrested about 7:40 p.m. Oct. 20 in the 3300 block of North Mountain Avenue in San Bernardino, according to inmate records.

A booking photo was released Monday of a man accused of killing a Redlands resident who was found fatally injured on a sidewalk on Webster Street early Saturday Oct. 20.

Gilbert Phillip Moreno, 21, of Redlands, was arrested about 7:40 p.m. Oct. 20 in the 3300 block of North Mountain Avenue in San Bernardino, according to inmate records.

Moreno was held without bail Monday, on suspicion of murder and participating in a criminal street gang, at West Valley Detention Center, according to inmate records.

Moreno is accused of murder in the death of Christopher Mykel Sanchez, 21, of Redlands, who sustained unspecified upper body trauma before police found him fatally injured in the 1200 block of Webster Street about 4 a.m. Oct. 20, according to Redlands police and coroner's personnel.

Paramedics from the Redlands Fire Department responded and pronounced Sanchez dead at the scene at 4:24 a.m., according to the coroner.

Detectives and other police personnel remained at the scene on Webster Street more than 12 hours Saturday investigating the alleged crime.

As of Monday afternoon police had released no information about the motive or the cause or manner of Sanchez' death, other than to state they were investigating a homicide.

Anyone with more information was urged to call Detective Rob Williams at (909) 798-7688 or Redlands Police Dispatch at (909) 798-7681. Anonymous tips can be provided by texting 274637 using the keyword "REDTIP."

What happened was a horrific act...What could have happened that would make one person so angry to kill another. Condolences to the Sanchez family for their loss but I also send my condolences to the Moreno family... they too lost a family member that night. The families are the victims in all of this and are left holding the pieces of their hearts. God bless them.

Don't you people sleep there's probably things going threw your head cuz you probably were on a good one that night and that makes you see things and makes you talk alot of nonsense

No you fckn IDIOT!!! It's because YOU obviously have the brain cell the size of a gnat! Like every other low IQ pond scum. And unfortunately you too believe you and your buddy Gibby are exempt from the laws the rest of us mere mortals must abide by. Most human beings cherish the lives of others. So imagine (although it will be hard for your teeny tiny brain) feeling comfortable under the false reality that you are among friends. Not realizing there is an enemy in your midst... Then BAM!!! You witness your innocent friend brutally slain by his "so called" friend...,dear ol' Gibbs. Which would be tramatizing for the average citizen of Redlands. Let alone knowing them both personally. The fact that you have no compassion and feel the need to rude and condescending at a time like this makes it "CRYSTAL" clear you need to be a Patton Mental Hospital patient. Hopefully heavily sedated, so as not to commit the same acts as your demonic, sick, sociopathic friend. Because like they say.....Birds of a feather FLOCK together. R.I.P. Chris. I pray God helps heal your loved ones hurt.

You wrote that terrible,mean and disrespectful comment about my cousin on what would have been his birthday, Nov.22. At this point it really doesn't matter what happens to Gilbert, Their is still a very big family that will never stop grieving for their son,brother, cousin, friend and father of two. Please don't disrespect the dead, Where he is we will all one day be.
