TEMECULA (CBSLA/AP) – Authorities are investigating reports that someone pulled a gun during a brawl among players and spectators and caused a panic at a youth soccer tournament in Temecula.
The altercation began Sunday during the Albion Development Showcase tournament, according to San Diego-area media reports.
Spectators say players from opposite teams began shoving during a match and a family member punched a player, leading to a large fight.
Some spectators and family members reported a “shooting”, but Albion Development Showcase CEO Noah Gins says deputies never found a weapon.

We were at the albion showcase soccer tournament in #temecula (ages 8-15) and alleged active shooter caused chaos. Via rough rumor mill, parents got in fight and someone claimed one had a gun. the chaos/crowds running away was scary. Kids & parents got hurt running away
