The incident took place at a residence in the 21600 block of Rider Street, according to a Riverside County Sheriff’s Department statement.

Deputies arrived at the home at 12:17 a.m.

Two people were declared dead at the scene and two other victims were hospitalized in unknown condition.

A neighbor said he overheard an argument at the home around 6 or 7 p.m. Thursday.

"We just know that house was really big on drugs. We see people coming in and out," a neighbor said.

Art Chavez, an uncle of one of the survivors, told KTLA other family members who live at the home are now afraid for their lives.

Chavez said his nephew's leg was shattered by a gunshot.

The victims' identities were being withheld pending family notification.

Investigators do not believe the deaths are linked to other recent homicides in the Perris and Lake Elsinore area.
