Deputies arrived and interviewed the vcitim (HOLMES) and found he was uncooperative with the investigation. HOLMES told deputies he was standing on the sidewalk near the intersection of Base Line Street and Church Avenue when he was shot. HOLMES stated a silver compact vehicle, occupied by unknown subjects, pulled up next to him and shot him for no reason. Instead of calling 911, HOLMES called his friend and was taken to the hospital. HOLMES claimed he did not know his friends name or address. HOLMES also said he was unable to provide a phone number for his friend. HOLMES did not provide any further information about the incident.
HOLMES was transferred to Loma Linda Hospital, where he was treated for a non-life threatening gunshot wound to the abdomen.
