The first resulted from a stabbing incident about 2:30 a.m. at Crivelli’s Restaurant out Hwy 169 about two miles south of Klamath. Two men were stabbed. One died as a result of that stabbing. A suspect is in custody.
The second homicide occurred about 6 a.m. in the the town of Klamath. “We had a shooting in the townsite,” stated Steven. According to the scanner, a woman was shot in the chest. Steven told us this morning that the woman is deceased.
“A vehicle was seen leaving the scene,” he explained. The description of it led an officer with the California Highway Patrol to a vehicle on Hwy 101. Law enforcement stopped the vehicle near Crannell north of the Arcata Airport.
Steven said the vehicle was “occupied by four adults and a child.” A weapon was located also, he said. Child Protective Services took the juvenile and the four adults were taken to the Humboldt County Jail.
“Later on,” Steven said, “we will release the name of the suspects in both homicides.”
When asked whether the two incidents are connected in some way, he said, “We’re looking into the possibility that they are related.”
