[UPDATE] Shots Fired as Burglary Suspects Flee; Law Enforcement Detains Two
According to scanner traffic about 7:45 p.m., a citizen reported to law enforcement tonight that shots had been fired after a burglary was interrupted. Apparently a chase had ensued with the suspects firing a handgun at the reporting party. The suspects fled in a pickup onto the river bar near Fernbridge.
Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies began searching for the suspects. They eventually captured one suspect about 8:45 p.m. and made brief voice contact with the other. The second suspect did not obey commands to come in so Fortuna’s K-9 was called for at approximately 8:51 p.m.
We’re following the ongoing situation and will update as soon as possible.
UPDATE 9:13 p.m.: The second suspect has been captured and the call for the K-9 has been cancelled.
