[UPDATE 4 p.m.]Man Found Dead With a Gunshot Wound Near Salyer
Yesterday evening around 5 p.m., The Trinity County Sheriff’s Office and the Salyer Fire Department responded to the report of a man with a gunshot wound in the Tunnel Flat area which is east of Salyer.
According to scanner traffic, the first arriving units determined that a man was deceased and had an apparent gunshot wound. Several attempts to get the Trinity County Sheriff’s Department to comment have been refused last night and again this morning. Salyer Fire can’t comment and referred us to the Trinity County Sheriff’s Office. We know community members are anxious to know more information but we are unable to provide more than what was heard on the scanner yesterday. We’ll keep trying to gather the information and let you know what we find out.
UPDATE 4 p.m.: The Trinity Journal is reporting that foul play is not suspected in this death.
