At approximately 12:50 p.m., scanner traffic indicated a Be on the Lookout had been issued by the Ukiah Police Department for a dark blue Honda sedan occupied by three males who reportedly fired a gun in the area of 1998 Elm Street.

Ukiah Police Department Lieutenant Andrew Phillips told us there were “no injuries” associated with the shooting but “one vehicle appeared to have been struck by a bullet.”

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at if you know a story that needs to be told.
