City News Service

PALM SPRINGS (CNS) – Two men traded gunfire during an altercation in a
Palm Springs store parking lot, but no one was injured, and the pair remain
at large, authorities said today.

The confrontation occurred about 2 p.m. Sunday outside the Smart &
Final in the 5200 block of East Ramon Road, just east of Highway 111, according
to the Palm Springs Police Department.

Police said the two men were involved in an unknown dispute that
escalated into a gunfight, culminating in both pulling handguns and “shooting
at each other.”

Witnesses called 911 as shots rang out, and patrol officers converged
on the location minutes later, but the two suspects had already fled, according
to police.

No bystanders were hurt, and there was no evidence at the scene that
either man had been shot, investigators said.

One suspect was described as heavy set, with a beard, wearing light-
colored pants, a dark shirt and a gold chain. The other man was slender,
bearded, with long hair wrapped in a bun, wearing a multi-colored shirt and
shorts.

Anyone with information was asked to contact the police department at
760-323-8129.
