[UPDATE Monday] Gunshot Victim Near Ettersburg
At about 10:05 p.m., emergency dispatch requested Garberville Ambulance and Telegraph Volunteer Fire to “stage” (await law enforcement’s clearance of the scene near but not actually at a potentially dangerous situation) as there had been a gunshot victim on Upper Mattole Canyon Road.
A Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputy is
already not yet on the way from Garberville which is about 45 minutes away from Upper Mattole Canyon Road, the dispatcher told the first responders.
A pickup truck will be bringing the gunshot victim to near the Crooked Prairie area to meet with the first responders, according to scanner traffic. [UPDATE: This did not occur, according to the Sheriff’s Department.]
UPDATE 10:48 p.m.: The Sheriff’s deputy has not left Garberville yet.
