A Humbolt County man is in police custody after allegedly shooting at a McKinleyville home. It happened around 8:30 Saturday night on the 1700 block of Lime Avenue. The victim and his stepfather reported that 42 year old Michael Robitaille came to their door, knocked and then shot at the door when they didn't answer. The victim checked the door after Robitaille left and saw a bullet hole that went through the metal door, three walls and eventually hitting a light fixture.
Officers found Robitaille on Penn Avenue where he admitted to going to the home, but denied shooting at it. He was arrested and taken to the Humbolt Count Correctional Facility. No weapon has been recovered.
