A Hoopa man was shot last evening, allegedly the result of a dispute more than a decade old. At about 6:15 PM, Sheriff’s Deputies were called to the K’IMA:W medical Center in Hoopa. Upon their arrival they found that Anthony Eugene Peters, 37, had been shot once in the leg. Peters told deputies that he had been shot because of a twelve-year-old feud between his assailant and him.

Deputies are looking for Gary Lee Albers Sr., 44 of Weitchpec in connection with the shooting. Albers is a Native American adult who stands about 5’ 7” and weighs approximately 140 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information about Gary Albers should call the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office at (707) 445-7251.
