According to authorities, Diaz was killed at his home. It's unclear if Diaz and Valdez knew each other; the motive remains under investigation.

The suspect has since been identified as 17-year-old Jaziel Valdez of Norco. Authorities said Valdez also goes by the name Ivan Camacho. He and the victim used to work together, according to officials.

Valdez allegedly stole a gray Chevy Silverado truck with California license plate 6E80094 from Diaz's home after the homicide, the sheriff's department said. 

If you see Valdez or the suspect vehicle, call 911.
