Assault with a deadly weapon in Orleans

On Dec. 23, 2018, at about 8:30 p.m., Humboldt County Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to the Orleans area for the report of a gunshot victim.

A male victim was reportedly riding his bicycle across the Highway 96 Orleans Bridge in Orleans when a white passenger van pulled up behind him. An unknown occupant of the van then shot the victim one time in the lower leg. The van made a u turn and was last seen traveling southbound on Highway 96. The victim was transported to a local hospital and was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. The injuries were consistent with bird shot, commonly used in shotguns. A suspect has not been identified at this time and the investigation is ongoing. 

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office at (707) 445-7251.
