Two Arrested After Shots Were Fired in Apple Valley

APPLE VALLEY – Two men were arrested after shots were fired in an Apple Valley neighborhood on Tuesday night. At around 8:35 p.m. deputies from the Apple Valley station responded to an apartment complex in the 15000 block of Tonekai Road for the report of up to seven shots fired and people screaming.   When they arrived they located several people in the front parking lot of the apartment complex. Deputies secured the scene while looking for any who may have been injured as a result of the shooting.

While searching, a black Mossberg shotgun was found under a vehicle in the driveway and 32-year-old Roberto Sanchez was seen walking away from the vehicle. After making contact with Sanchez, deputies learned that Sanchez was a convicted felon and located a shotgun shell in his possession.

Deputies also attempted to make contact with several occupants in one of the apartment homes, but the occupants refused to come out. A search warrant was served where a shotgun and multiple spent rounds were located. Cedrick Miles Buckner, 26, was located inside of the apartment and arrested for negligent discharge of a firearm. Both Sanchez and Buckner was booked into the High Desert Detention Center. Sanchez was released on bail on Wednesday afternoon and Buckner was released on bail early Thursday morning.
