I’m sure it’s nothing. Go back to sleep.

A 911 caller reported hearing over 100 shots fired and seeing five to seven men wearing turbans and shooting “assault rifles, handguns, and shotguns,” according to a Sheriff’s Department statement.

A county sheriff’s helicopter located the men walking near a creek with backpacks “and other items”, The Los Angeles Times reported.

Officials say the men were cooperative as they were detained and searched.

Several handguns, a rifle, and a shotgun were found at the scene, but a records check found all the weapons were registered with the exception of the rifle, which reportedly didn’t have a serial number because it was purchased in parts, an FBI spokesperson told The Times.

Police scanner traffic posted online by the Victor Valley News Group described “a large group of subjects wearing turbans and chanting” at the scene.

“They were up all night chanting ‘Allah Akbar’-type stuff,” an unidentified officer is heard saying on the audio recording. [WHISKY TANGO FOXTROT!]

None of the hikers interviewed by Sheriff’s investigators say they witnessed any shots being fired, according to Sheriff’s officials.

All 17 men were eventually released because Sheriff’s investigators say they had no outstanding warrants or criminal histories.

“There was no evidence found that a crime had been committed by any of the subjects who were detained and they were released,” a Sheriff’s spokesperson said.

The FBI may conduct further interviews with the men to determine if any crimes were committed, The Times reported.

    At our local shooting range, only 1/2 mile away, there have been credible reports of “Asian” men speaking “another language, not Spanish” and practicing with fully automatic weapons. We’re concerned.

    • I do not blame you. The moderate Muslims in Canada openly call for the destruction of Canada.

        Look at Omar Khadr , Ezra Levant exposed him for going back to Al-Qaeda and his family because a Liberal Judge and Trudeau released him and let Omar have an iPhone .
        Almost 4 weeks ago Omar was caught using that iPhone and he contacted a muslims Terrorist he met in GITMO, he also contacted the Family which his Dolt lawyer said were corrupt and at fault for little Omar’s troubles.

        Not 1 story by the CBC or STAR. Omar’s lawyer was so quick to talk to the Media outside his house by has no gone silent and refuses to talk to Ezra about Omar’s bail conditions where he’s allowed to go back to Al-Qaeda terrorists .

        Omar’s lawyer got played for a sucker Leftist as do many islamists that know there is a nice quarry of idiots in the Liberals and NDP plus Public unions .
        When the bombs go off they will blame Harper for bringing him back to Canada even though Justin got Omar released.

          I for one, hope for the day when Omar Khadr gets arrested as an enemy agent…
