HEMET - A man suspected of fatally shooting an 18-year-old Hemet resident outside a home on the west end of the city was arrested today on suspicion of murder.

Vincent Calderon, 22, of Hemet was taken into custody following an investigation into the July 13 attack that killed 18-year-old Sequoyah Gavin.

Calderon was booked into the Hemet Jail, where he's being held in lieu of $1 million bail.

According to Hemet police Lt. Eddie Pust, detectives gathered information pointing to Calderon as the alleged shooter, but no other details were disclosed, including a possible motive.

Pust said Gavin was gunned down about 8 p.m. Friday in the 1100 block of Stepstone Court, near Silkstone Drive.

Patrol officers arrived at the location within a few minutes of the attack and found the victim mortally wounded. He was pronounced dead by paramedics moments later.

The gunman was not immediately identified.

Anyone with information was asked to contact the Hemet Police Department Homicide Unit at (951) 765-2423.
