Beaumont, CA - On Tuesday, June 21, 2022, an 18-year-old male, and Roberto Gutierrez, age 30, both from the City of Beaumont, were charged with murder and attempted murder in the March 182020, homicide of Leo Miguel DeLara.  At this time the 18-year old’s information is being withheld since he was a juvenile at the time the crime was committed.  

On March 18, 2020, at approximately 8:53 p.m. the Beaumont Police Department received a 911 call regarding a shooting at a residence in the 100 block of Myrl Drive.  Officers arrived and located Leo Miguel DeLara and a female suffering from gunshot wounds.  DeLara died at the scene and the female was transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Witnesses reported seeing two subjects wearing dark hoodies leave the residence on foot.  With very few leads to go on, Beaumont Detectives spent a large amount of time completing a comprehensive homicide investigation.  This included the identification and difficult work of locating persons involved in the incident, as either witnesses or persons of interest.   

In January 2022, to draw attention to the continued investigation of the case, the department issued a press release looking for additional information or witnesses.  From this, information was received from the public and detectives were able to put together sketches of two suspects, which assisted in efforts to identify the suspects and led officers to their arrest on Tuesday.  

The Beaumont Police Department thanks the community and individuals who contributed leads and information that assisted in the solving of this case.  We would also like to thank our regional law enforcement partners for their assistance.  Beaumont Police Detectives were greatly assisted by the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office Gang Impact Team.  The Gang Impact Team is staffed with investigators and agents from the Riverside District Attorney’s Office; Homeland Security Investigations; U.S. Border Patrol; California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitations Special Services Unit; and Detectives from the Hemet, Palm Springs, Corona, Beaumont, Cathedral City, Banning, and Desert Hot Springs Police Departments.

This case has been submitted to the Riverside County District Attorney’s office for prosecution.  It is through the dedication and commitment of our staff and these partners that we were able to solve this homicide and give the family some long awaited answers.
