No Officer Involved Shooting in Mendocino
Usually something not happening doesn’t make the news, but one of the major roles of media is to put rest unfounded rumors. A rumor of a Mendocino Sheriff’s deputy involved shooting in the Spy Rock/ Iron Peak area has been rapidly spreading. Multiple people have contacted not only this media outlet but at least one other asking about the story. No one claimed to have seen the incident first hand but only to have heard about it.
In response, RHBB (Redheaded Blackbelt) contacted Lt Greg Van Patton of the Mendocino County Sheriff who said that no Mendocino Sheriff officer had been involved in a shooting. The rumor appears to be totally unfounded.
