A warrant has been issued for a second suspect in the shooting of a man during a marijuana-related robbery in the China Creek area of Southern Humboldt on August 30.

The victim had met with potential purchasers at the intersection of Briceland Road and China Creek Road when the suspects attempted to flee with the marijuana without paying. When the victim attempted to stop them, one of them pulled out a firearm and shot him. The victim received life-threatening wounds and was flown to an out of the area hospital for treatment.

“Detectives are currently working on identifying the third suspect which will hopefully lead to another warrant,” Lt. Kenny Swithenbank of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office said.
