Deputies were called to the Cahuilla Creek Motocross Park, 50100 Highway 371, on a report of gunfire, said sheriff’s Sgt. David Pike. Deputies said seven tourists were riding in the park about 1:30 p.m. when they began arguing with the owner, 60-year-old Robert Harvell.Investigators said that Harvell grabbed a rifle and shot at the tourists’ van as they were leaving the park. A bullet entered the right rear door of the van, passed through a seat and struck a tourist in the leg. The tourist, who was not identified, was treated and released from Inland Valley Regional Medical Center in Wildomar, Pike said.
