About 5 p.m., Eureka Police assisted by the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Department and the California Highway Patrol searched several apartments in a building in the 1100 block of Searles Street for a shooter. According to Captain Brian Stephens of the Eureka Police Department, “It had to do with a stolen vehicle or a lost vehicle being located by the owner. The owner was confronted by some individuals.” Shots were believed to have been fired…We detained four people that we believe have some association with either the car or the incident itself.”

“Everybody that was detained was wearing the same color of clothing,” said Captain Brian Stephens.
