Two security guards were shot at in Temecula over the weekend.
The guards were patrolling a business complex in south Temecula when they noticed an older model two-door Toyota Corolla-style vehicle pull into a parking lot in the 33000 block of Temecula Parkway on Saturday March 17 at 2:30 a.m., officials reported.
One of the suspects exited the car and started relieving himself in the driveway. A second male passenger exited the car and realized they were being watched by the security guards.
The second passenger started screaming profanities at the guards as the other man stopped urinating, pulled out a gun and began firing at the security guards, the report stated.
The guards ducked and dropped to the ground to avoid the hail of gunfire.
“The security guards were uninjured in the shooting,” Riverside County Sheriff’s Deputy Albert Martinez said.
Both of the passengers jumped back into the waiting car driven by a third suspect and sped away southbound on Butterfield Stage Road.
The shooter is described as a tall White or Hispanic adult male in his mid 20’s and last seeing wearing a dark colored sweatshirt.
The passenger was described as a short White or Hispanic adult male last seen wearing dark clothing.
The driver is described as a White or Hispanic adult female in dark clothing, a Riverside County Sheriff’s report stated.
The suspects remain at large, according to officials.
“The investigation is ongoing and we are tracking down all leads,” Deputy Martinez said.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to call the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Southwest Station at 951-696-3000.
