Curtiss Booker Jr., 31, was identified by Rialto police Tuesday as the suspect in the murder of his father, 58-year-old Curtiss Booker Sr. of Temple City.

According to police, several 911 calls at about 11:15 a.m. Monday reported a gunshot victim in the 400 block of East Chaparral Street. When officers arrived, they found the elder Booker lying in the front yard of a home. He later died of his injuries.

Witnesses told investigators there was a domestic dispute between the father and son, who then shot his father. The younger Booker left the area before officers arrived, according to Rialto police.

Police did not say why the two men were at the Rialto home.

Booker is considered to be armed and dangerous and should not be approached. Anyone with information about Booker or his whereabouts can call 911 or Rialto police Sgt. Mills at (909) 820-2632.
