Calls to 911 began to come into the local county sheriff’s office early Sunday morning reporting Middle Eastern men firing hundreds of rounds and shouting “Allahu Akbar” close to a local state park in San Bernardino County, California. One of the callers stated that they heard guns being fired for two hours. Hikers took photos of the men and claimed that they were shot at. Local police detained the men but shortly released them that same day as they did not believe they broke any laws.

“San Bernardino County sheriff’s spokeswoman Jodi Miller said the men were released after authorities found no evidence of a specific crime or outstanding warrants. None of the persons interviewed yesterday were identified as terrorists.”—LA Times

FBI investigating suspicious activity in San Bernardino County, California

Besides the obvious, the timing of this event makes it suspicious given the recent San Bernardino shootings and the attacks in Europe. It is not certain if the hikers were shot at, but looking at the terrain of the pictures, it appears to be in a valley or draw which could carry the sound farther.
