Yucaipa Deputies Ask for Public’s Assistance in Sunday’s Mobile Home Park Shooting
An argument on Sunday left five adults – four males and one female – with non-life-threatening wounds and Yucaipa deputies are now seeking assistance from those present at the scene of the crime. Deputies believe that there may be dozens of witnesses and other involved parties at and around the fight that led to the shooting.
Deputies responded at approximately 9:48 p.m. to a residence in the 12700 block of California Street, in the Mountain View mobile home park, following a report of a fight with multiple shots fired. A family barbeque at the site turned contentious in the late afternoon when a Chevrolet TrailBlazer pulled into the mobile home park and the vehicles’ occupants began arguing with family members at the barbeque. The situation escalated and as the occupants of the vehicle threatened to later return to the site and kill the family members as they left the site.
When multiple occupants of the vehicle returned to the barbeque site that evening a fight broke out and numerous rounds were fired from a handgun striking the victims on their legs and arms. During the investigation by Yucaipa deputies one suspect and the suspect vehicle were located. However, the one suspect’s role in the shooting is undetermined.
The entire situation remains under investigation. However, Yucaipa deputies believe that many witnesses to the fight and/or the shooting could assist them with the investigation. Anyone who left the scene prior to the deputies arriving are asked to contact the Yucaipa Police Department, especially anyone who may have captured the fight and/or the shooting on video.
Witnesses can contact the Yucaipa Police Department at 909-918-2305 or visit the Yucaipa Police Department at 34144 Yucaipa Blvd. in Yucaipa.
