Butte County Sheriff's Deputies are investigating a shooting near Paradise Thursday evening, that sent two victims to the hospital.

The suspect, 48 year old Richard Duran, is in custody for two accounts of assault with a deadly weapon.

The call came in at about 5:30 p.m. to a reported shooting inside a home at the Lime Saddle Estates Mobile Home Park, at 4334 Pentz Road north of Lime Saddle Road.

Authorities say a 40 year old man was shot in the leg, and a 53 year old woman was shot in the foot. They did not disclose a motive for the shooting, which is believed to have stemmed from a dispute.
