PERRIS, Calif. (AP) - The Marine from Camp Pendleton who was killed in a skydiving accident in Riverside County has been identified as a Colorado man.

Riverside County Coroner's officials on Wednesday identified the victim as 26-year-old Caleb Medley of Burlington, Colo.

Fire officials say they received a call of a skydiver down shortly after 3 p.m. Tuesday. When they arrived near the Perris Valley Airport, they found a man had died.

Riverside County sheriff's spokeswoman Sgt. Lisa McConnell says the man was among a group of Marines who were conducting a military training exercise. McConnell couldn't say how many other Marines were involved or if there were problems with the victim's parachute.

Perris is a popular skydiving area about 75 miles southeast of Los Angeles.
