  • Laytonville Rock


  • SaltWaterTaffy

    9:04 another shot fired.

  • I got family down there

  • The roads are still blocked off and officers are still on scene.

  • My daughter was taking her clothing to her car, she saw a guy to her right and a guy in the yard across the street. The guy on the right ( on the side walk) told her to go inside because the guy in the yard across the street had a gun. She turned around to go back inside and could hear them saying stuff about wanting to fight. She came in and told me, I looked outside and saw the guy with a gun, I then heard the gun go off twice. I then called 911. The guy that was being shot at started to walk down the street to wait for the police to come. The man with the gun went back into his house. Then the police came and the guy with the gun was ordered to come out of his house and his did without resistance.
    I wonder how he, “the guy with the gun” would feel if someone was shooting a gun in the direction of his house while his children were home! NOT A HAPPY MOM TONIGHT!!

  • Omg, I can’t believe the scanner tried to say it was just fireworks. What a bunch of b.s. the gun went off again after the cops were down here.

    • Steve Simpson of Simpson construction was the man firing the gun at other houses in Fieldslanding . he could have killed some one

  • He thinks he’s tough

  • skyrockets. Not gunfire. Look up, people. A few went off after cops left.

  • Heads or tails?

  • He shot his gun twice at a guy, towards my house… Then while cops were at the scene a large fire work went off down the street.

  • 3 guys showed up to his house with guns, shovels… Steve fired warning shot to in air to get them away… He was protecting his family…
