Palm Springs, CA

On January 13th, 2022 at about 12:55 am, PSPD received a call from a victim in the 1600 Block of Via Entrada saying his neighboring condominium was just burglarized and the suspect shot at him with a firearm. Officers arrived to that location and found evidence of a burglary and of the reported shots fired. Additional evidence at the scene showed the suspect was a Black male adult wearing a dark beanie, a light colored sweater, baggie shorts or jeans, and black shoes. Officers searched the area and recovered some of the victim’s property but the suspect was not found.

On January 13th, 2022 at about 1:39 am, PSPD received a call of a fight in an apartment complex in the 800 Block of Riverside Place. The caller said a naked black male adult was swimming in the pool and causing a disturbance. PSPD received a second call from the same location advising of a fight occurring between several residents and an unknown male. Officers arrived and found a naked male adult matching the suspect description lying on a bed and bleeding profusely. It was later determined that, during the fight, the suspect broke into an apartment and was thrown off the second story balcony during an altercation with several residents. After being thrown from the balcony, the suspect ran back up to the same apartment and jumped through a window which caused multiple lacerations. Officers entered that apartment and placed the suspect, Tracy Rose (06/26/1999, Male adult resident of Palm Springs), into custody. Rose was transported to a local hospital for treatment of his injuries.

It is currently unknown if Rose was the suspect in the initial reported burglary. The two locations are approximately one mile from each other and the suspect descriptions are similar in both cases. Palm Springs Police Department Detectives will be investigating these events and have asked that anyone with information to please contact the Palm Springs Police Department Detective Bureau at 760-323-8144.
