sheriffALPINE, Calif. — Gunfire at an East County apartment complex early Thursday prompted deputies to detain a group of people for questioning and arrest one of them.

The shooting happened shortly after 3:30 a.m. in the 2000 block of Arnold Way in Alpine, according to sheriff’s officials.

Arriving patrol personnel discovered shell casings in front of one of the rental units at the complex but found no gunshot victims or property damage, Lt. Clayton Lisk said. The deputies took five people into custody for questioning, eventually releasing four of them and jailing the other on an unrelated warrant, the lieutenant said.

It was unclear what led to the gunfire, though a loud gathering at the residence where it occurred had led to a noise complaint earlier in the night, sheriff’s officials told reporters.
