VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Authorities are conducting an attempted murder investigation after two people were shot Saturday inside the Colony Apartments in Victorville.
At 1:23 pm, on June 13, 2020, deputies responded to the apartment complex located in the 14000 block of El Evado Road following the report of shots heard.
When deputies arrived they located two male victims suffering from gunshot wounds, officials said.
According to scanner traffic, one victim was shot in the back of the head and the other in the hand. A resident from the complex told a VVNG photographer they heard 8-10 gunshots but did not see the shooting.
Victorville City Firefighters requested a helicopter to land at Victor Valley Global Medical Center and airlift the victim suffering from life-threatening injuries.
