The FBI on Tuesday was continuing to question people after receiving reports from campers that a group of armed men in a remote part of Apple Valley fired hundreds of shots Sunday morning.

San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputies and an FBI agent responded to the area known as Deep Creek Hot Springs after reports of gunshots and chanting in the predawn hours, officials said. According to law enforcement sources, 17 men of Middle Eastern descent were detained.

But none were arrested or charged in connection with shooting firearms and they cooperated with deputies. . . FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said agents are working with local authorities to determine if crimes were committed.

A caller to 911 reported hearing more than 100 shots fired and seeing several men wearing turbans in the area of the shooting. 

With the assistance of a sheriff’s helicopter, deputies located the men walking away from a creek carrying backpacks and other items.

A photograph taken at the scene shows the men handcuffed as several deputies examine their backpacks and equipment.
