PALM SPRINGS (CNS) – Authorities today are investigating whether a man
who allegedly swam naked in a community pool and fought residents in the
area was the same man who attempted to burglarize a condominium and shot at a
witness one mile away.

The Palm Springs Police Department received a report of an attempted
homicide and burglary at 12:55 a.m. Thursday in the 1600 block of Via Entrada.

The suspect was described as a black man wearing a dark beanie, a
light-colored sweater, baggie shorts or jeans and black shoes.

Less than one hour later, at 1:39 a.m., the Palm Springs Police
Department received a report of a fight at an apartment complex in the 800
block of Riverside Place. According to the caller, a naked black man was
swimming in the pool and causing a disturbance. A second caller said a fight
occurred between several residents and a man.

Officers arrived on the scene and found the naked man matching the
suspect description. They identified him as Tracy Rose, 22, of Palm Springs. He
was lying on a bed, bleeding.

Police believe Rose broke into an apartment during the melee and was
thrown off a second-story balcony, but then ran back to the apartment and
jumped through a window, lacerating himself.

Rose was placed under arrest and transported to a local hospital for
treatment of injuries. He does not appear in jail records.

Police do not know if Rose was the suspect in the initial reported
burglary; however, the two locations are about one mile apart and the suspect
descriptions are similar in both cases.

The two incidents were under investigation and police urged anyone
with information to contact the Palm Springs Police Department Detective Bureau
