HAPPY VALLEY, Calif. – Thirteen people were detained by SWAT team members at a Happy Valley home after two people were shot Sunday morning, according to the Shasta County Sheriff's Office.
The incident came to the attention of the Shasta County Sheriff's Office at approximately 5:30 a.m. on Sunday.
Sheriff’s deputies were notified that two people had been shot and were at a local hospital with non-life-threatening wounds. The deputies then started to investigate.
Deputies learned there may have been a related confrontation early in the morning in downtown Redding.
Deputies said the victims then went to a home at 6513 Lu Lu Lane in Happy Valley. They said the confrontation “escalated” there and that it is suspected to be the place where the shooting occurred.
Deputies went to the Happy Valley residence and said they located evidence to corroborate the victims’ statements. Later the deputies said they were able to find the victim’s car which was discovered to have several bullet holes in it.
The officers said the occupants at the Happy Valley home were “uncooperative and belligerent” towards them. They were able to secure a search warrant for the residence and the property.
Thirteen people at the residence were questioned and the home was searched for evidence by investigators.
The Shasta County Sheriff's SWAT team was called in to serve the warrant “because of the crime, the hostile demeanor of the occupants, and the possibility of an armed confrontation.”
