A confrontation involving several men at a Coachella street corner nearly turned deadly early today when one of them was shot and wounded, a sheriff's sergeant said.
Dispatchers received a 911 call at 1:45 a.m. and sent deputies to 4th Street and Vine Avenue where the shooting happened. The victim was sent to a hospital for treatment of what Riverside County sheriff's Sgt. Steve DaSilva described as a non-life threatening injury.
No one was arrested in connection with the shooting sheriff's officials will treat as an assault with a deadly weapon case. Deputies asked anyone with information about the incident to call Investigator Lisandro Tijerina at the sheriff's Thermal station at (760) 863-8990.
