An apparent shooting investigation in a business complex in Rancho Mirage spurred a heavy police presence in Rancho Mirage Friday morning.

Authorities warned people on Twitter at 10:11 a.m. to avoid the area of Highway 111 and Indian Trial Road in Rancho Mirage due to an unspecified investigation, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

The department said public information officers were on their way to the scene, but did not provide additional information.

The Desert Sun reported deputies arrived about 9:30 a.m. to the 71-500 block of Highway 111, and that witnesses reported hearing gunshots in the area.
