A heated argument between five men at a San Jacinto park turned violent when gunshots were fired, sheriff’s authorities reported today.
Dispatchers received a call at 8:36 p.m. Saturday and sent deputies to Mistletoe Park, at Mistletoe Avenue and 5th Street. Witnesses told deputies the group were involved in a dispute before it escalated, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department reported.
At some point gunshots were fired, prompting all the men to bolt from the scene. One projectile struck the fender of a parked vehicle nearby but no one was hurt and no one was arrested, sheriff’s authorities said.
Deputies urged anyone with information about the shooting to call the sheriff’s San Jacinto station at (951) 654-2702.
