“PSPD officers were conducting close patrols in the area of N. Indian Canyon Drive and Corozon Avenue when they heard sounds of gunshots.
A few seconds later, officers saw a black Mazda sedan traveling eastbound on Corozon Ave. and turn northbound onto N. Indian Canyon Drive. As officers followed the vehicle, multiple reports of shots fired were received coming from the 400 block of Palm Vista Drive.
Officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the black Mazda and a pursuit ensued. Officers pursued the vehicle eastbound on I-10.
During the pursuit, two objects were thrown out of the vehicle onto the freeway. The vehicle exited at Bob Hope and officers lost sight of the vehicle and terminated the pursuit.
Officers checked I-10 where the objects were thrown from the vehicle and located two firearms. Both firearms were seized for evidence.
Officers continued to search for the pursued vehicle and found the vehicle unoccupied behind Walgreens in Rancho Mirage (72000 block of Dinah Shore).
The California Highway Patrol Helicopter and Riverside County Sheriff’s Department deputies assisted in the search but the suspects were not located.
During a check of the Desert Highland Gateway Estates neighborhood, officers located shell casings and discovered a residence had been struck in the 400 block of Palm Vista Drive. There were no injuries reported and no witnesses have come forward to report the shooting.
The Palm Springs Police Department is asking anyone who may have information to contact the Crimes Against Persons Unit Supervisor, Sergeant Miguel Torres at 760-323-8144 or report the information anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 760-341-7867.”
