Woman found dead after reports of shots fired in South Palm Springs

Palm Springs Police are investigating the “suspicious death” of a 38-year-old woman in the city Monday following a report of shots fired.

The Palm Springs Police Department received the shots-fired call around midnight Monday in the area of South Cherokee Way near the Oasis Resort, according to Sgt. Mike Casavan, who added that officers arrived to find the woman already dead.

Neither the identity of the woman nor the circumstances surrounding her death were immediately available, and the Riverside County Coroner has not filed a report. KESQ-TV reported that the woman was found dead in a vehicle and that she was a Desert Hot Springs resident.
