On Wednesday, April 1, 2020 at 6:53 a.m. Hesperia deputies responded to several 911 calls reporting a man being run over multiple times by a subject driving a minivan. The driver of the minivan, identified as Terrance Bright, fled west bound on Main Street before deputies arrived. Deputies and medical aid arrived and found the victim unresponsive. The victim, Reo Moore, was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased.
Dispatch received a call of an attempted carjacking at a gas station on Main Street and the suspect and vehicle description matched that of Terrance Bright and the minivan. Responding deputies located the van traveling west on Main Street and initiated a traffic stop. Bright failed to yield and entered the northbound I-15 freeway. Several minutes later, near Roy Rogers Drive, he stopped and was detained without incident.
Detectives from the Specialized Investigations Division – Homicide Detail responded and are conducting the investigation. Detectives learned that early Wednesday morning Terrance Bright argued with his brother and stole his brother’s minivan. Bright then went to Reo Moore’s home where they argued and got into a physical fight. Moore was able to run from the apartment and into the parking area where Bright got into the stolen minivan and struck Moore multiple times with the vehicle. Bright fled the area and was later arrested by Hesperia deputies.
Terrance Bright was arrested for Murder and booked at West Valley Detention Center where he is being held without bail.
