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.
