[Update 10:39 a.m.] Two Flown to Out of the Area Hospitals; No One Arrested Yet in Late Night Shooting
No suspect has been arrested in last night’s shooting on Wade Road off of Alderpoint Road, said Sgt. Ken Swithenbank of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. “There is a possible person of interest.” [See earlier story here.]
Two people, he confirmed, were airlifted to out of the area hospitals.  The woman is being treated for a gunshot wound to the head and the man has two wounds–one to the neck and one to the shoulder. Both are expected to live.
Deputies have searched the property and there are no other victims even though initially there were reported to be three victims. Detectives are on site investigating the shooting. At this point it appears that shots were fired from outside into a trailer.
“The trailer is located at the scene of a grow site,” Swithenbank said.
