DANA POINT – SWAT team members who responded to reports of a rifle shot at an apartment complex in Dana Point on Wednesday afternoon left after determining that there was no one in the unit they were focusing their search on.

A neighbor about 9:20 a.m. reported seeing a man fire a single shot from what looked like a rifle outside a four-unit apartment complex in the 34100 block of The Street of the Amber Lantern, authorities said.

Nearby residents were evacuated as the Orange County Sheriff’s Department SWAT team arrived at the scene, sheriff’s Lt. Steve Doan said.

Negotiators were unable to contact the man, who witnesses say was last seen running upstairs into an apartment.

The SWAT team entered the apartment about 2 p.m., Doan said, finding it unoccupied. It wasn’t immediately clear if there were any weapons in the apartment.

Authorities have not yet determined whether a firearm was actually shot, or if there was an explosion.

“We don’t believe it was aimed at anyone,” Doan said.

Authorities believe that they know the man’s identity, but have not yet located him.

SIDE NOTE:

After several hours Orange County Sheriff Deputies entered the dwelling and found it empty.
