OILDALE — Deputies were able to talk a 66-year-old man armed with a handgun into giving himself up after he allegedly shot a woman in Oildale on Sunday afternoon.
Johnnie Hall was taken into custody and booked into the Central Receiving Facility for assault with a deadly weapon, spousal abuse, and felony animal cruelty.
According to the Kern County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were called to a home at about 1:30 pm on Dec. 1, in the 3000 block of Worthington regarding a shooting that had occurred inside.
Deputies said they heard shots being fired inside the residence as they arrived and at the same time saw an adult female, suffering from at least two gunshot wounds, exit the front of the home to the front porch area.
After being removed to a safe location, the victim told deputies that Hall was armed inside the garage of the home and was in possession of numerous firearms.
Deputies were able to make contact with Hall, who agreed to exit the garage voluntarily before a KCSO SWAT team arrived. He was taken into custody without further incident.
Prior to being taken into custody, Hall had sustained a minor injury to his throat area and was transported, along with the victim who sustained non-life threatening injuries, to Kern Medical Center by ambulance for treatment. He was booked after his release.
A further investigation at the home also revealed that a dog had been fatally shot inside the residence. Deputies also seized numerous firearms from the home including the handgun used to shoot the victim.
