Roving Vehicle Occupied by Two Reportedly Firing Shots on Covelo’s Henderson Lane


Over the last half hour, dispatch has informed officers of a black truck reportedly occupied by two subjects that have fired a gun on two separate occasions on Covelo’s Henderson Road.

The first incident occurred at approximately 6:05 p.m. when a reporting party near the 2300 block of Henderson Road said a black truck playing loud music was occupied by one subject in a light shirt and another subject. On that occasion, the subjects reportedly fired a gun three times then drove off toward Round Valley High School

At approximately 6:35 p.m., the same black truck arrived in the original reporting party’s area, one of the subjects got out of the vehicle, and fired another shot. The reporting party told dispatch they witnessed the muzzle flashes associated with shots fired.

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 journalist for the everyman. Journalism has become a craft practiced largely by the urban elite. 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.
