Victim’s Name and Suspects’ Photos Released in Klamath Shooting
Information about what occurred yesterday morning has not yet been released but a family member explained that Grant had been getting her son, a second grader, ready for school a little before 6 a.m. The suspects had a dispute with another member of Grant’s household outside the home, said the family member, when one of the suspects fired a gun. The shot struck Grant in the chest.
Grant was able to walk a few steps to get help before she collapsed. Unfortunately, said the family member, the remote area meant that it took a while before emergency services arrived. She died on the floor of her home.Meanwhile, the four suspects fled in a pickup towards Eureka. A California Highway Patrol officer spotted the vehicle and it was pulled over not far north of the Arcata Airport near the exit to Crannell. According to an earlier interview with Commander Steven, a weapon was found. Steven also said the four suspects (see photos above) were arrested, and a child who was in the vehicle went into the custody of Child Protective Services.
Family members of Sunni Grant are very upset. One told us, “The town of Klamath can have a casino but you can’t get help for your people…They don’t have any type of emergency service at all…Maybe it is possible that she could have been saved. She could have at least not had to suffer.”
