Ona adult and five juveniles from Temecula and one other man have been arrested in connection with the shooting of a man at a party April 10 in Temecula, police said today in a news release.

Racquel Rangel, 18, was booked into the Southwest Detention Center on suspicion of conspiracy and attempted murder. Five males, ages 16 and 17, were booked on suspicion of the same crimes, as was 21-year-old David Montijo of San Diego.

According to the news release, Sheriff's Department deputies responded to the 30600 block of Pauba Road at about 11:59 p.m. to the report of a shooting at the residence. Upon arrival, they found more than 50 people attending a party at the residence. The party was hosted by an underage teen while the homeowners were away, police said.

Soon after, the victim of a non-life-threatening gunshot wound arrived at a nearby hospital, seeking treatment. The victim reported he had been shot while attending the party.

Arrests were made after detectives interviewed numerous subjects and processed a variety of evidence related to the incident. According to witnesses, an altercation occurred between two groups of people during the party. One of the groups fled the party in a vehicle and threatened to return with a firearm. A short time later, several subjects arrived at the party in a white pickup truck. The subjects exited the truck, approached the party and shouted something before shooting into the crowd.

At least two of the subjects involved in the shooting were recognized from the earlier altercation, police said.

Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to call Investigator Stutler or Investigator Mullins at the Southwest Sheriff’s Station, 951-696-3000.
