Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Press Release

On Tuesday, June 26 at approximately 1:30 a.m., the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office received a call of a possible intruder in a residence in the 4000 block of Fickle Hill Road, Arcata. While the deputies were enroute the Sheriff’s Office dispatch received a call that the intruder had been shot

Deputies increased their response to Code Three and medical was notified to respond. When deputies arrived they spoke with the homeowners, a 24-year-old male and an 18-year-old female. The homeowners told the deputies they were awakened by their dogs barking.

When the male homeowner yelled at his dogs to be quiet, an unknown male voice answered from inside their home. The male homeowner saw an unknown male and an unfamiliar dog in his living room. The homeowners told the unknown male to leave their residence. The unknown male told the couple to leave his residence. The homeowners saw there was a vehicle parked outside their residence that had crashed into their gate post. The homeowners went to a nearby neighbor and asked for help.

The neighbor, a 42-year- old male, and the male homeowner returned to the residence. The neighbor brought a shotgun with him for defense. When they entered the residence they again asked the subject on the couch to leave. The subject on the couch was very intoxicated and appeared to believe he was in his own home. He jumped up from the couch and came at the neighbor who was holding the shotgun. The neighbor fired the shotgun one time. The male subject was struck in the abdominal area causing a significant injury.

The injured male was transported to a local hospital and is in critical condition. Sheriff’s Detectives were called to the scene to investigate. No arrests were made and the case is being referred to the Humboldt County District Attorneys Office for review.

  5. So much BS about this story. They guy is well known around here and is a neighbor of the shooter. He was way too drunk and fell asleep on the couch in the wrong house. After the people who live there called police, they went to the neighbor's house (where they should have stayed) The victim went back to sleep and was awoken by the neighbor with a shotgun. BTW, his pelvis is shattered and his intestines blown out. HE WAS NOT STILL COMING AFTER THEM. This isn't TV folks, shattered pelvis= on the floor screaming.

    When the guy said to the homeowner/renter "Get out of my house!" That clearly shows that he thought he was in his own house. Being intoxicated enough to slam into your own house on the way home(also in the article) and find yourself in a house with someone pointing a shotgun at you, it clearly points that the person who fired the weapon had no business pulling the trigger or being there when popo's were on the way. In most cities, the shooter would be charged with negligent homicide. So stay off drugs and alcohol would be a much safer statement to say than the ignorance of "Don't go into peoples houses." There was one house and he didn't try any other house. Open a book and learn to read, then repeat when you get to the end, but remember, choose a different book otherwise it gets monotonous.

    That's a great piece of evidence. This person Miranda should be interviewed. Miranda, have you ever seen someone shot in the torso from close range while extremely intoxicated? When did you get your training and where. Did you remember the pictures they showed you or did they use real people or cadavers. The person was not aggressive at first, he thought he was in his own house, even the kid whose house it is said that. Then when he brought over the firearm with the kids permission, they conjoined in this plot of self defense, even though they had already called the cops who torture people. Cops always show force and plenty of it. Everyone knows this, so why go back in with a gun unless the person wanted to have retaliation or control the situation. In almost every state, using a gun to control the situation without a badge is usually only permissible by ex military and people without a felonious record. So just you know this, these two guys who together killed an already noticed intoxicated, unarmed man with a dog, may not get the self defense support they think they should have. DA's are not always easy to convince, anyone know the validity on that?

    hmm, guess having tweakers try to kick in my door while living in eureka gives me a slightly different view than yours. And regardless I'm glad the neighbor showed up and people I know are okay.

    Is there another article stating that the man is dead? Last paragraph states he is in critical condition. And have you ever come home to somebody under the influence of something in your living room?

  18. As of Friday, he is still in critical condition.

    Pretty tricky to respond both as your dog and yourself as well. Should probably try to be less of a bitch on your profile though.

    Leave Eureka then and explore the rest of the evil world, you would like it since then you'd have so much of other peoples to steal and think that Humboldt is the only place in the world. THEN AGAIN, NO ONE WANTS TO SEE YOU ANYWHERE ELSE.

    I have left eureka and it's great not having people steal my stuff anymore. And exactly why is it you think I steal people's stuff? You sure do like to make alot of random and rude assumptions. Must be really miserable being such an angry and mean spirited person. I also find it kind of laughable that the one who is so against home defense is also the one who is so angry and hateful.
