[ARCHIVED] Two Men Arrested Following 'Shots Fired' Investigation

Dwayne Johnson Joseph Tutt Hemet Police Arrest

On 04/02/13 at 6:30pm, Hemet Police Dispatch received calls of shots being fired in the area of Oakland Avenue at Hamilton Street. Officers were able to find a crime scene in an alley near the 1100 block of Valencia Avenue. The scene was processed and evidence was collected. Officers also contacted several residents for additional information and suspect description(s). No one was injured after the shooting.

At about 10:30pm, Hemet Police Officers conducted extra foot patrol in a near-by apartment complex. After speaking to additional residents and corroborating evidence collected earlier, the officers closed in on a parked vehicle that was occupied by two male subjects. The two occupants exited the vehicle and ran from officers.

Officers gave chase and saw them run into the rear of a near-by apartment. A female resident of the apartment said she did not know the two men who ran into her apartment. Officers entered and located one of the subjects laying on a bed pretending to be sleeping. The other was hiding in the attic.

A loaded stolen semi-automatic handgun was found in the attic where the man was hiding. A search of the vehicle the men ran from resulted in the recovery of another loaded semi-automatic handgun.

Charges: Possession of a Loaded Firearm, Possession of Stolen Property, and two active Arrest Warrants.

Dwayne Johnson, 18 year old transient
