“On June 18, 2022, two victims contacted BCSO and reported a male, who they identified as Drake Afflerbach, age 27, of Chico, shot at their vehicle. The victims reported while driving on Cohasset Road, Afflerbach pulled a vehicle alongside the victim’s vehicle and shot at the victim’s vehicle. Deputies examined the victim’s vehicle and located evidence that gave them cause to believe Afflerbach shot the victim’s vehicle.
On the morning of June 20, 2022, deputies saw Afflerbach driving a vehicle in the area of Hicks Road, Chico. Deputies attempted to conduct a traffic enforcement stop on Afflerbach. Afflerbach did not stop and fled from deputies. Afflerbach’s vehicle struck another vehicle at the intersection of Eaton Road and Constitution Drive.
A BCSO deputy saw Afflerbach exit the vehicle and flee on foot. Deputies are actively searching for Afflerbach. BCSO is asking anyone with information about Afflerbach’s location to contact BCSO.”
