Ukiah law enforcement is actively seeking a suspect in a shooting that occurred this afternoon which resulted in a male juvenile with a head wound requiring hospitalization.
Ukiah Police Department Lieutenant Andrew Phillips made note that the investigation is in the early stages and information is evolving.
He did confirm that after UPD officers responded to a male juvenile suffering a head wound on Mulberry Street, officers ascertained a description of the suspect and began a search while EMTs attended to the wounded juvenile. Lieutenant Phillips made note that the juvenile victim is alert and concious.
Nearby Yokayo Elementary School would briefly be placed on “lockdown” status after UPD informed Ukiah Unified of the situation.
Lieutenant Phillips said UPD has yet to take the suspect into custody, “but due to evidence located at the scene does not appear to be armed any longer.” The suspect is described as a white male with a thin build wearing a camouflage sweatshirt.
If you have any information, contact the Ukiah Police Department at (707) 463-6242.
UPDATE 6/30/2022 3:11 p.m.: The following press release provides the most up-to-date information about the incident:
Why did the writer of the article describe the suspect as “white”? The UPDs official description is that he is Mexican.
Where did you get that “official description”? We got ours from Ukiah Police Department Lieutenant Andrew Phillips.
Scanner traffic said, “Black hoodie, with cartoon graphic” print. Not camo. Just an FYI
It would be Hispanic not Mexican ( if it were an official description)
Hispanic is looked at as a white man term placed on Mexicans. Mexicans aren’t from Spain. SMH.
If you write it’s a Mexican we will also be offended either way as log as they find guilty person best not go into Race label
We? Do you speak for the Mexican delegation?
So what would be a fitting description?
Scanner traffic said black hoodie, cartoon graphics. Backpack with “sharks teeth” print. Not a word of “camo hoodie”. Just an FYI

I don’t know where anyone would confuse hispanic or Mexican from clearly stated white, male. Yet you had to pull the scanner info just to clarify, oh wow!
Scanner traffic also stated that the person they had detained was not the suspect and let them go
While I’m very grateful that Yokayo school was placed on lockdown for children’s safety, but what about the residents being notified to stay vigilant in the local area? I know with absolution that there are children living nearby Observatory park that were at their homes this afternoon…It would have been nice to alert the local residences too.
Agreed , the only reason I knew ANYTHING happen was because my fiance was going to go to the store and I got a call from him like literally one minute after he left. The only alert I got yesterday was to do with the fire by laws.
Ill take where is Hunter Biden for $400 Alex.
Some Mexicans are mixed w Spanish
does anyone have information about that boy
They don’t want to give more info, since the suspect is still out there I imagine. Or all these news stories suck, they never have enough info. You never hear the ending sometimes.
Welcome to the new world of repeating….oops, I mean reporting. A headline is what we get now, rarely ever a story. A story has a beginning, a middle, and an ending. A story leaves you feeling satisfied that you’ve been well informed. Rarely ever happens. Except in the Bible. It would be seriously exhausting to bring that kind of news to the table! Not many are able to put that kind of effort in. But who knows where this ship of Matt’s might be headed. 😇👍
