Two Dead in Two Humboldt Cities Yesterday: Video and Photos
According to the neighbor, she was told that the suspect shot himself. The video below begins about 30 seconds after the shot was fired. The first few seconds are dark but you can hear the sound. Then officers can be seen ordering residents back inside their house. Parents can be heard frantically calling their children inside.
The video below by the same neighbor shows the scene a little better as an officer stands behind his vehicle using it as a shield as he provides backup to an officer closer to the shooting.
Soon afterward, medical personnel was allowed in and the suspect, Ronald Crossland, was pronounced dead.
There are at least three different crime scenes to be processed–the residence where the original homicide occurred, the vehicle used by the suspect, and the trailer park where Mr. Crossland died–so it might be some time before more information is released.
