Shots fired in McKinleyville

On 07-24-2019, at about 10:00 AM, the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office received numerous 911 calls from citizens reporting shots being fired near the 1400 block of Reasor Rd., in McKinleyville. It was reported that a black male adult wearing a black and red sports jersey was involved in the incident and was recently seen leaving the area of Larissa Cr. in a blue sedan.  Later reports suggested there may have been an exchange of gun fire between a group of individuals.  

Deputies along with members of the California Highway Patrol, Arcata Police, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, and Cal Fire immediately responded to the area to investigate.  Arcata Fire and Mad River Ambulance responded and staged to assist.  A Humboldt Alert was issued to those within a one-mile radius of the incident location, directing them to stay indoors.   

The scene was secured around the area of Reasor Rd. and Larissa Cr., and an investigation was conducted.  Several individuals were detained and later released.  It was determined there may have been two groups of individuals involved in an altercation in which a black male adult wearing a red and black sports jersey had discharged a handgun.  Deputies and Officers searched the area for the blue sedan.  Several vehicles were investigated but were determined not to be involved in the incident.  The involved blue sedan was not located.  A search of the area was conducted, and no firearms were located.  Deputies did not locate anyone who had been injured, and there were no reports made of any injuries or gunshot victims in this incident.  The identity of the involved parties is unknown at this time, as they had either left the scene prior to Law Enforcement arrival or were not cooperative in providing information on scene.  

Anyone with information about this case or related criminal activity is encouraged to call the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office at (707) 445-7251 or the Sheriff’s Office Crime Tip line at (707) 268-2539.
