While Deputies were responding, an additional call was made reporting Lorenzo Gomez Rodriguez had been shot. Sometime thereafter an additional 911 call was made from the 14100 block of Anderson Valley Way (Boonville, CA) of a gunshot victim requesting medical assistance.
Deputies arrived along with members of the California Highway Patrol. The person found suffering from gunshot wounds, was identified as Lorenzo Gomez Rodriguez. Rodriguez was subsequently treated by medical personnel and ultimately transported to an out of county hospital where he was last known to be in stable condition.
Detectives from the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office responded to investigate the incident.
It was determined Rodriguez was a suspect in a domestic violence incident with a 26 year-old female adult in the 18500 block of Philo Greenwood Road. When other persons present attempted to intervene, Rodriguez then armed himself with a knife and attempted to assault an 18 year-old adult male and a 42 year-old female adult.
The 18 year-old male adult armed himself with a handgun and defended himself and the 42 year-old female adult by shooting Rodriguez multiple times.
Rodriguez fled the scene and was subsequently transported by private vehicle to the 14100 block of Anderson Valley Way (Boonville, CA).
The investigation into this incident is still ongoing. Anybody with information that might assist Sheriff’s Detectives is encouraged to call the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office Tip Line at 707-234-2100.
