  • What about the shots fired????

    • Yes!! Why are they denying, or in this release not mentioning the shots fired? Ask any one that lives in that area or any of the clinic staff and they will tell the shots were fired. Hence the lock down!

  • Agree with Sleepy

    [edit] What happened to the 86 list….come on people lets clean up the valley and it starts with all the non-Tribals that bring misery to our people.

  • People using their vehicles as weapons geeze Louise!!!🙊

    • Not the first time it’s happened this year in Humboldt.
      Cars deliberately driven into people and buildings more than once this year.

  • Reporting shots fired gets a quicker response from authorities than calling in a cat fight. Just saying. Doesn’t put the community at ease though, shots are so common place anymore it’s scary..

    • It also increases the reported incidents data. Let’s hope the anti-anti’s are keeping track of all the “incidents” that the anti’s are keeping track of.
