On January 4, 2020, at about 6 a.m., Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a report of shots fired in the 29000 block of Highway 36 in Bridgeville.

The 84-year-old male victim called 911 stating that his roommate shot at him inside the residence. Deputies arrived on scene and met with the victim. The victim informed responding deputies that after he was shot at, he fled the residence and drove to Highway 36 to call 911. The victim informed deputies the suspect was still armed with a firearm and another unknown type rifle inside the residence.

Deputies then responded to the residence and called the suspect out from the residence. The suspect, later identified as 52-year-old Kelly Teach, exited the residence and was placed under arrest. While placing Teach in the patrol vehicle, Teach became combative and struck a deputy. Teach was placed in the backseat of a patrol vehicle without further incident. 

Teach was later booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility for Attempted Murder (PC 664/187(a)), Elder Abuse likely to cause Great Bodily Injury/Death (PC 368(b)(1)), Battery on a Peace Officer (PC 243(b)) and Resisting/Delaying a Peace Officer (PC 148(a)(1)). Her bail has been set at $500,000. 

This incident is still under investigation. 

Anyone with information regarding this 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.
