A shooting involving a Riverside County sheriff’s deputy Monday near a country club in Indian Wells was under investigation, officials said.

No deputies were injured in the shooting, which occurred in the 44000 block of Desert Horizons Drive, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department reported.

Deputies cordoned off an area near the front of the Desert Horizons Country Club at around 7 a.m.

A letter sent by Desert Horizons to its residents said the shooting followed a pursuit on Highway 111 and that “police were close behind the suspect and they shot and killed the man at our front gate.”

“No one from Desert Horizons was injured and all is secure,” the letter read.

Sheriff’s officials have not confirmed that a person was shot and killed.

A road closure was in place at Desert Horizons Drive and Highway 111, and authorities asked the public to avoid the area.
