COACHELLA (CBS) —  Two men were fatally shot in Coachella Sunday, a sheriff’s department spokesman said.

At about 4:30 a.m. today, deputies responded to a “shots fired” call in the 52000 block of Calle Camacho in Coachella. When they arrived, the deputies located two males who had been shot. Both were pronounced dead at the scene, and the sheriff’s Central Homicide Unit was called, said Sgt. Jim Erickson.

The investigation was continuing.

The identifications of the deceased were withheld, pending family notification, Erickson said.

Investigators urged anyone with information about the shooting to call the sheriff’s department’s Thermal station at (760) 393-3500 or Crime Stoppers at (760) 341-7867 to make anonymous tips.
