Tehama County sheriff’s deputies have arrested a suspect in the shooting of a 15-year-old girl in Red Bluff last month.

Anthony Nahinu, 18, was arrested Wednesday after a month-long search that followed a July 19 shooting near the Red Bluff Diversion Dam.

According the sheriff’s office, deputies found the 15-year-old with a gunshot wound when they responded to a disturbance near the dam’s entrance. The girl survived the shooting.

While investigating the incident the next day, deputies found the gun believed to have been used in bushes about half a mile from the scene and identified Nahinu as a suspect.

Nahinu has been booked into the Tehama County Jail on suspicion of attempted murder. He is being held on $1.5 million bail.
