Grant Leggette Sr., 57, was at a Valentine’s Day celebration at a Marriott hotel on Market Street on Feb. 14, 2020 when he was shot several times while going out to his parked car. Even with a $10,000 reward for information in the case approved by the Riverside City Council, the killer remains at large.
