A man was gunned down Wednesday at the Vail Lake Resort east of Temecula, but the circumstances were unclear.

The fatality was reported at about 10:40 a.m. within a campground at the resort, located in the 38000 block of Highway 79, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

“It’s still very hectic down there,” Sheriff’s Sgt. Deanna Pecoraro told City News Service. “There’s a lot going on, so we don’t have many details at this point. The investigation is developing.”

County fire personnel had been called to the location, but were asked to stage at the front entrance of the resort until deputies ensured the area was secure.

When paramedics arrived, they confirmed that the victim, whose identity was not immediately known, was deceased, according to reports from the scene.

There was no word on whether a suspect or suspects had been identified, or a possible motive in the deadly attack.
