Deputies assigned to Jurupa Valley Police Department, along with other emergency personnel, responded to the area around 8:15 p.m., after receiving reported of a shooting, InlandNews reported as the investigation was getting underway.

When officials arrived they reportedly found two men suffering from gunshot wounds. Both victims were transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Deputies quickly cordoned off the area, designating parts of the residential street a crime scene. Investigators and specialists from the department’s Forensic Services Unit were summoned to the scene to assist with the investigation.

They were later observed documenting, photographing, and collecting, evidence from the scene, including shell casings and what appeared to be a small-caliber or realistic-looking pellet or BB gun, which was found near the middle of the street.

As of last night, no suspects were in custody and sheriff’s officials have not yet released any information about their investigation, which is active and ongoing.
