“On Tuesday, November 3, 2020 at 0142 hours, deputies from the South County Patrol Station were dispatched to the area of 4645 Two Feathers Road in West Cottonwood, California, for the reported shooting.
When deputies arrived, they located Ciaara Robberson, 19 years of age, from Redding, California and Isaac Patino, 22 years of age, from McKinleyville, California suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. They were transported to a local hospital where Patino succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased. Robberson is expected to survive and is still being treated for her injuries sustained during the shooting. The Shasta County Major Crimes Unit was contacted and ultimately took over the investigation.
When detectives arrived at the location, they discovered the property was being used as a marijuana growing operation. There were several makeshift outbuildings and a dilapidated travel trailer that appeared uninhabitable where Patino was ultimately located by deputies. The marijuana operation had already been processed and removed from the property prior to this incident.
Based on witnesses’ statements, evidence collected at the scene, this shooting appears to be an isolated incident and there is no risk to public safety at this time. This is still an active and ongoing investigation, if anyone has any information regarding this case, they are encouraged to contact the Shasta County Major Crimes Unit at 530-245-6135 or by email at MCU@co.shasta.ca.us.
During the course of this investigation, the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit identified that suspects using the monikers of “Qufar” and “Pirate” were involved in the shooting death of Isaac Patino. Detectives were able to identify “Qufar” as Abdiqafar Mohamud Mohamud, 28 years old, from Seattle, Washington.
On November 4, 2020, a no bail warrant for homicide was issued by the Shasta County Superior Court for Abdiqafar’s arrest. Abdiqafar subsequently turned himself into the Shasta County Jail on December 19, 2020. He was booked on the outstanding homicide warrant and he is currently being held without bail.
On November 7, 2020, an unknown subject contacted the Shasta County Jail and stated he was responsible for the homicide that occurred on Two Feathers Road and he was going to turn himself in. The following day, November 8, 2020, detectives contacted Abdishakur Isaq Ibrahim, 28 years old, from Seattle, Washington, at the Shasta County Jail. Abdishakur was positively identified as the suspect known as “Pirate” and he was placed under arrest for homicide. He was booked into the Shasta County Jail and his bail was set at one million dollars.
Abdishakur and Abdiqafar remain in custody at the Shasta County Jail. At this time, both suspects have declined to provide statements to detectives. This is still an active and ongoing investigation, if anyone has any information regarding this case, they are encouraged to contact the Shasta County Major Crimes Unit at 530-245-6135 or by email at MCU@co.shasta.ca.us.
