Law Enforcement and Medical Personnel Responding to Reports of a Man Shot in the Neck at Covelo’s Buckhorn Bar


Law enforcement and medical personnel are responding Code 3 (with lights and sirens) to the Buckhorn Bar in Covelo after reports of a male being shot in the neck came in to 911 at approximately 11:40 p.m.

First responders were told by the dispatcher that attempts were being made to coach the reporting party through CPR but the person was “just screaming.” After a few minutes, the dispatcher confirmed CPR was in progress.

The suspect fled the scene. The dispatchers warned deputies that he is considered dangerous and he has an Officer Safety Bulletin associated with him.

Please remember that this story is unfolding. Information is being reported as we gather it. However, some of the information coming from witnesses and initial official reports could be wrong. We will do our best to get the facts but, in the case that something is inaccurate, we will update with correct information as soon as we can.

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 matthewplafever@gmail.com if you know a story that needs to be told.
