On 06/29/2022 at about 1:55 PM, UPD’s dispatch center received multiple 911 calls reporting a  shooting that just occurred in the area of Mulberry St. and Observatory Avenue. Callers provided differing descriptions of the male suspect who was last seen running northbound toward Observatory Avenue. UPD  officers as well as other local law enforcement personnel responded to the area.  

Upon arrival, UPD officers located a male teenager within the 1100 block of Mulberry Street. The male victim appeared to have a head wound and officers observed a spent shell casing from a firearm near the victim. The victim was conscious and alert. EMS was summoned to the scene to treat the victim. While officers at the scene contacted witnesses to obtain further information; other officers and law enforcement personnel searched the surrounding area for the suspect. Personnel in the area located a male who matched the description of the suspect, within the 100 block of Observatory Avenue. This male was detained without incident and was determined to be uninvolved. The male was released. UPD contacted UUSD and briefed them on the incident, due to it having occurred within several blocks of Yokayo Elementary School. UUSD  staff determined a lockdown of the school was appropriate.  

UPD Detectives arrived at the scene to assist with the investigation. The victim was transported to  Adventist Health Ukiah Valley hospital for treatment. He was later released following treatment for his injuries. 

The investigation revealed the victim was wearing a backpack while walking on Mulberry Street. He was contacted by the suspect, who was described as a male, of thin build who was wearing a camouflage print sweatshirt and a green ski mask on his face. The suspect attempted to remove the victim’s backpack from him and pointed a semi-auto pistol at the victim. A struggle ensued and the victim was struck on the head multiple times (pistol whipped) by the suspect. During the struggle, the firearm was discharged and became disabled.  The victim was not struck by the gunshot. The suspect fled the area with the victim’s backpack. 

UPD Detectives are still actively investigating this incident and anyone with information is urged to contact UPD at 707-463-6262. The suspect has not yet been identified or located.

UPD would like to thank MCSO and CHP personnel, as well as the District Attorney’s Investigators who assisted with this incident.

  1. Did you all notice the description of the suspect was completely left off the article? I wonder why? hmmmmm

    • Quit trying to stir things up you don’t know about. The suspect was reportedly white and transient-appearing.

    • From the article…

      “ the suspect, who was described as a male, of thin build who was wearing a camouflage print sweatshirt and a green ski mask on his face.”

      Wtf are you talking about?

  2. UPD would like to thank MCSO and CHP personnel, as well as the District Attorney’s Investigators who assisted with this incident.

    But even if caught the revolving door will let the perp free in days so why the taxpayer expense in catching him,they,they, their, them. it, or whatever non-description word handcuffed authorities provide. as a description.

    The Supreme Court says you can get a CCW permit to protect yourself but of course Gavin (twosome) Newsom will release your identity, home address and claim Whoops it was a mistake with hisgoofy grin!

    Keep voting democrat for more articles like this folks, maybe you or your chilfren will be in the paper too soon!

      • Maybe shopping with a firearm would make these criminals think? They obviously arent deterred. By a peaceful citizen walking around unarmed. A neutered police force and a liberal court system …. A few armed robbers getting. Shot in the comission of robbery. Is a great idea!

  3. Should of gave him the backpack & avoided the hospital. It’s a time for giving. Save the officers the time they don’t need to be hiking in the woods over a backpack

    • It’s still a robbery even if he gave up the backpack, an armed robbery!!!!! So let’s just let him go, this is why this world is going down the toilet because of people like you. So your okay letting this guy commit robberies? WOW
