Shots fired in San Jacinto

SAN JACINTO, Calif. -  A heated argument between five men at a San Jacinto park turned violent when gunshots were fired, Sheriff's authorities reported Sunday.

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.

Witnesses were unable to provide any further descriptions of the five subjects involved. Deputies on scene did not locate any victims or suspects.

One projectile struck the fender of a parked vehicle nearby but no one was hurt and no one was arrested, Sheriff's authorities said.
