When police arrived, they found a trail of teens who were either dead or wounded along Oxford Drive and Post Street.

Five high school teens were hanging out at the Cinnamon Creek Apartments when they were approached by someone with a gun who opened fire. When police arrived, they found four wounded teens. Two of them died in the hospital. Two others survived. The fifth escaped unharmed. Redlands police are investigating whether the incident is gang related or racially motivated. Crime rates are generally low in Redlands, making this tragic incident especially shocking to community members. What are police doing to respond?
