Mar 21, 2014 5:28 PM

Shasta County Sheriff deputies have set up a perimeter near Buena Vista Court and Deschutes Road as they search for a suspect who opened fire at another man.

It happened around 2:30 p.m. on the 11000 block of Buena Vista Court.

Initial reports say a man called the Shasta County Sheriff’s dispatch to report his ex-girlfriend’s boyfriend pulled up in a Jeep vehicle and shot at him with a revolver.

The suspect fired at the reporting party and also at his home.

Two deputies were involved in a two vehicle non-injury crash near Buena Vista Drive and Deschutes Road near the location of the reported shooting, according to the California Highway Patrol.

We are working at getting more facts about this incident and don’t know if the deputies were responding to the incident.

Action News Now reporter Charlene Cheng is at the scene and stated deputies are on foot using a K-9 unit to look for the suspect.

We will have a full report tonight on Action News Now at 5 and also check back for updates on our Facebook page.
