A call came in to the MCSD on Monday afternoon concerning a gunshot victim. Officers responded to the scene and learned that there had been an argument between neighbors in the 38000 block of South Highway 1.
At issue was an easement on a shared driveway. During the heated discussion, 62-year-old Paul Palestrini hit 69-year-old Harry Miller with a shovel. Miller, in turn, shot Palestrini in the torso.
Both gentlemen were taken to the hospital for their “significant injuries” and were both listed in stable condition.
At press time no charges have been determined as :it has not been determined if there was a primary aggressor in the incident.”
The MCSD says, “Any persons with information about this incident are encouraged to contact the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office Communications Center at 707-463-4086 or call the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office tip line at 707-234-2100.”
