In an early morning Facebook post, the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s assistance in locating two armed and dangerous suspects associated with last night’s shooting outside Covelo’s Buckhorn Bar that left one person dead.
MCSO described the two suspects associated with the homicide:
- Dino Michael Blackbear (AKA Lincoln), 34-year-old, 6′, 220 pounds, black hair, and brown eyes
- Carina Amanda Carrillo, 32-years-old, 5′ 6”, 120 pounds, black hair and brown eyes
The Facebook post by MCSO describes the incident occurring near the intersection of Greeley and Highway 162 in Covelo at approximately 11:30 p.m. Blackbear and Carrillo were last seen traveling on foot near the area of Tabor Lane at 12:30 a.m.
Scanner traffic from last night’s homicide placed the incident at the Buckhorn Bar and portrayed a dramatic scene. The dispatcher worked hard to coach the reporting party through CPR while the reporting party initially was screaming through the telephone. The victim was reportedly transported via ambulance but succumbed to their injuries.
MCSO warned the suspects should be considered “armed and dangerous with a small caliber firearm” and urged members of the public to “not approach and contact 9-1-1.”
MCSO asks that any member of the public, “with information regarding their possible whereabouts is urged to contact the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office at 707-463-4086. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office Tip-Line at 707-234-2100.”
