A Riverside man was expected to be arraigned Tuesday on charges of attempted murder after police say he turned himself in for a recent shooting in Loma Linda.
24-year-old Joshua Williams was arrested at Loma Linda University Medical Center on Sept. 20, where he turned himself into hospital security, according to a statement from San Bernardino County Sheriff's Deputy D. Patton.
According to Patton, Loma Linda sheriff's deputies found an injured man on Sept. 19, in the 11200 block of San Juan Street, around 10:22 p.m.
"Deputies arrived at the apartment complex and found that the victim had just been shot in the stomach with a rifle," Patton said. "The victim was transported to Loma Linda Hospital Emergency Room, where he remains hospitalized."
While on scene, sheriff's deputies searched the area for the suspect, but did not find anyone.
"They were able to locate the rifle used in the shooting, but the suspect was able to avoid capture," according to Patton.
After turning himself in to authorities the next day, Williams was taken to the Central Detention Center in San Bernardino, where he was being held in lieu of $1 million bail, according to jail records.
