CLEARLAKE — On June 8th just before 7:30 PM, police received word of a shooting on Old Highway 53 near Lakeshore Drive.
Responding officers discovered an unidentified 31-year-old man lying on the sidewalk with a single gunshot wound. Medical personnel arrived quickly and transported him to St. Helena Hospital for treatment.
Witnesses reported that the victim had been in a vehicle traveling north on Old 53. While in the left turn lane approaching Lakeshore Drive, the victim got out of the vehicle and was promptly shot by one of the occupants still inside.
The vehicle is said to have then headed west on Lakeshore. It has since been found by police and impounded as evidence.
Clearlake PD reports in a press release that the victim, “who has not been fully cooperative with officers,” is currently under treatment for non life-threatening injuries.
