Scanner traffic indicates two people died following a shooting in the Kerlin Creek watershed west of Hyampom. Law enforcement got on the scene about 10:50 a.m. today, according to Gary Booth who can listen to the scanner in that area. (We don’t have access online–Trinity County is one of only four counties in California not available on the internet. We are situated too distant to access Trinity scanner directly.)
According to Booth, as of 11:05 a.m., “CHP H16 is overhead of scene looking for more bodies, two inside house… .” Law enforcement hasn’t made contact with the person who called in the shooting.
We’ll be attempting to follow this story which occurred in a remote area. Law enforcement thought originally this shooting occurred in Trinity County but as of 11:30 a.m. scanner traffic indicates that it is 1000 feet inside of the Humboldt County line, according to Gary Booth.
