Resident And Burglary Suspects Engage In Shootout

A shootout erupted between a resident and a suspected burglar early Saturday morning.

Palm Springs Police officers were dispatched at 1:42 a.m. to the 700 block of San Lorenzo Road on a shots fired call.

A resident interrupted a car burglary in progress. One of the alleged thieves pulled out a gun and fired at the resident. The resident pulled out a gun of his own, fired back at the suspects, who drove away in a black car.

Several bullet holes were found in two vehicles near the scene. One bullet narrowly missed a man sleeping in his apartment.

"We don't recommend that any citizen take the law into their own hands, especially in the middle of the street," said Sgt. John Booth.

The suspects were described to be three or four men in a late 1980's Toyota Camry or Lexus.
