A police pursuit is in progress this evening east of Fort Bragg on Sherwood Road.

Beginning around 7:30 p.m., Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office deputies began a pursuit of a suspect known to law enforcement for a firearm brandishing incident in Fort Bragg this evening.

The vehicle pursuit followed Sherwood Road east until meeting up with County Ranch Road. After striking railroad tracks intersecting the roadway, two tires blew out and the suspect foot-bailed running eastbound on the tracks.

Deputies were in pursuit on foot until 7:47 p.m. when law enforcement radio contact was compromised requiring officers to cancel the pursuit.

UPDATE 7:50 p.m.: Deputies have officially returned to their vehicles. The suspect is armed and at large. The suspect is a male named Johnny Delgado and suspected of brandishing his firearm at a female. Deputies spotted the vehicle and attempted a traffic stop when they noticed its license plate was inoperable.

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.

    • Look at county booking logs any day of the week. What percentage of those arrested are hispanic? What percentage of those arrested are strung out on drugs smuggled into the country by hispanics? Where do you think the drugs come from? Are you capable of objective critical thinking? If you don’t notice a problem, you are part of the problem.

      • Stats dont lie. We are being invaded from the south. And the commander in thief is eating ice cream. And number 2. Is cackling like a lunatic and making romper room speeches. But no mean tweets!

        • We’re blaming the problem on criminal illegal aliens, and if you paid any attention you’d notice a lot of them around here. Pull your disingenuous head out of your ass.

          You’d think someone calling themself “oldukiahan” would know better

            • I guess your vocabulary is running short! You’re just another spiteful, greedy boomer-liberal flushing our country further down the toilet before you wink out with the rest of the “me” generation. The sooner you’re all gone, the better. You will not be missed, not even by your pet guatemalans!

                • I feel sorry for you, big guy. You could at least try to come back with some numbers to refute my point. But that’s too difficult an assignment for you because you know I’m factually correct.

                  Your sentiment isn’t as popular as you think it is.

  1. I hope you have a son or daughter. & I hope they bring a Latino home for dinner someday. Maybe even have a Latino child. Would you discriminate against them too?.. .shitty people come in every color, race, creed etc etc. I guess you’re here to represent the white version of humanities worst offerings.

      • Very thought & insightful! I can see your education stopped at stupid & has held steady ever since. I hope you have decided to not procreate! We’ve got all the dumb we can handle already!

        • Funny you mention IQ. Trump is a big proponent of that metric! I’m pretty sure most of our illegal migrants score pretty low in that department. Probably unvaccinated, too! Oh well!

  2. UPDATE:
    Mendo Sheriff’s were able to stop suspect vehicle: Six officers approached vehicle and found back door open and suspect not in vehicle. Later officer dashcams and bodycams show suspect exiting vehicle by way of backdoor… suspect then walked away from area passing 4 officers as they approached vehicle. Suspect not located. Sherriffs spokesman declined comment

  3. Everyone getting on Katherine about her post ” Delgado just saying.” Everyone just assumed she was talking ethnicity…ever think shes a local and her. Comment was stating that what more can expect he a Delgado, he’s a problem just like e the rest of family,….
    Maybe her comment was not racist in nature, except to those looking to argue about race

    • ‘She’ does this often and is very explicit. It’s just something fun for ‘her’ .not her first intentionally racist remark….troll

      • Toughen up people. Everybodys offended. Fuck your feeings. Obviously delgato is a douchbag. If he gets called a name or two. So what ? If you are undesirable and people call you names. Change your ways if you dont change your ways who cares if your offended anyway. If its not you being called names. Mind your own buisness
