Late last night Humboldt County Sheriff’s Deputies received a report from a caller in Orleans that a man had been shot. At about 10:15 p.m. deputies responded to a residence on Red Cap Road and found the victim, Nolan Eugene Colegrove, 27 of Hoopa, lying in front of the house. Deputies learned that Colegrove had been shot at another location and then came to the residence seeking help. Medical personnel also responded to the scene and transported him to an area hospital. He is in stable condition.
Deputies learned that Colegrove and a companion were walking on Red Cap Road when a black, full-size Chevrolet pick-up truck approached and suddenly stopped. They heard several gunshots and Colegrove was struck. Investigators are not releasing how many times Colegrove was struck or where on his body he was wounded.
Anyone with information about this case should call Sheriff’s Detective Troy Garey at (707) 268-3643.
