Two men were detained Thursday morning, July 6, in connection with a shooting in the parking lot of a Walmart in Moreno Valley.

Nobody was reported to have been injured in the shooting, which was reported at 9:30 a.m. at the Moreno Beach Plaza parking lot, 12721 Moreno Beach Drive, said Riverside County sheriff’s Deputy Armando Munoz. Deputies believe one of the men was the shooter, since they were found in possession of a firearm, Munoz said about 10:30 a.m.

Posts by residents on social media that the incident was a “hostage situation” are untrue, Munoz said.

Deputies are still “attempting to determine what occurred,” Munoz said.
