Two men accused of shooting at least two people in Palm Springs are expected in court Wednesday to face a number of charges.

Juan Louis Macias, 27, of Desert Hot Springs, and Luis Garcia, 31, of Palm Springs, were arrested Sunday when the Palm Springs Police Department responded to a call of shots fired at 1:50 a.m. in the 200 block of Indian Canyon Drive, authorities said.

According to police, the initial call indicated that at least two people were struck by gunfire. Police used a description of the suspects and the suspect vehicle, and within minutes, were able to locate and arrest Macias and Garcia, police said.

The victims were transported to a hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Macias and Garcia were booked into the John Benoit Detention Center on suspicion of attempted homicide, assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy, police said.

Macias was being held on $1 million bail while Garcia was being held without bail. Jail records indicate they are scheduled to appear at the Larson Justice Center on Wednesday to be charged.
