Wednesday morning, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Hemet Station received calls from four different people reporting the sound of gunshots in the Cedar Glen area, according the Hemet Capt. Joseph Borja.

“We responded, but no one was located or arrested,” he said.

The callers provided a limited description of the shooters. One even thought the voices suggested the person may have been inebriated, Borja added.

The identification of the area of the shots varied from Cedar Glen Drive, Point of Rocks Drive, Doubletree Drive (which is in the Cedar Glen neighborhood) and the Idyllwild Nature Center, according to Borja.

  1. This incident was located near the “bedrock mortars” in the Nature Center hiking trail area (located just next to Cedar Glen). I live in Cedar Glen & heard the gunshots. I then leashed up my dogs & we walked over to the area to investigate. We arrived after the perps’ had left. I found six “Modelo” beer cans lying around a large tree stump. One can had a bullet hole through it. The fact that anyone would be shooting at beer cans in a public park is definitely cause for concern. I only wish they had been caught.
