Case No#: 201304101
Released By: Lt. Steve Knight

Location: Eureka

On 08-12-2013, at approximately 5:00 a.m., the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call from a 24 year old Eureka woman who reported her residence in the 2200 block of Hillcrest Drive, Eureka had just been shot at.

Deputies responded to the residence and met with the woman, along with another 48 year old woman and a 50 year old man who resided in the residence. The 48 year old woman told the deputies at approximately 12:30 a.m. 08-12-2013, she let her dog outside into their fenced yard. When she was outside with the dog she saw a large full sized pickup truck parked at the base of their driveway with five Asian adult males standing outside the truck. They asked her if a man lived in her home. She told him the man they were asking for did not live at her residence. They then asked if her adult son was home and then they all walked up to the woman’s gate. She told them to leave or she would call law enforcement. They all left, with one of the men telling her they didn’t care if she called law enforcement.

At approximately 4:50 a.m. on 08-12-2013, the woman and her other family members were in bed asleep when they heard several gunshots. Several of the rounds struck the bedroom window where the 24 year old woman (daughter of the 48 year old woman) was sleeping. Other rounds struck vehicles in front of their home. At least six rounds were shot at the home and vehicles.

The victims believe the Asian men who were at their home earlier may be involved. The truck was described as a white full sized Ford F 350. No further description. The men were described as being in their 20’s, no further description was provided.

No one was injured in the shooting.

Anyone with information for the Sheriffs Office regarding this case or related criminal activity is encouraged to call the Sheriffs Office at 707-445-7251 or the Sheriffs Office Crime Tip line at 707-268-2539.
