Riverside Police on Tuesday linked the suspect involved in a crime spree at several Southern California 7-Eleven stores with a shooting that occurred at a Riverside location.

The shooting in Riverside took place early Monday morning at the 7-Eleven on the 5100 block of La Sierra Avenue.

In a statement, Riverside Police Department spokesperson Ryan Railsback said that the suspect brandished a firearm, robbed the clerk, and then shot a customer before fleeing by foot.

Besides the Riverside location, at least five other 7-Eleven stores were robbed across Southern California early Monday morning within a span of 5 hours. That includes stores in Ontario and Upland.

Police officials believe at least four of the incidents are tied to the same suspect but are continuing their investigation. The other incidents occurred in the cities of Brea, La Habra, and Santa Ana.
