A 15 year old juvenile who shot a local homeless man was committed to the Division of Juvenile Facilities on Wednesday in Juvenile Court.

The juvenile who was 14 years old at the time of the shooting admitted guilt to an attempted murder charge.

The juvenile court judge sentenced the minor to up to 10 years of confinement time.

The attempted murder charge arose from a February 7th 2017 incident which occurred in a transient camp in an orchard above the Oroville fish hatchery.

District Attorney Mike Ramsey said the juvenile and a 57 year old male got into an argument that morning when the juvenile and his friend were loitering around the man’s camp.

According to a witness, the juvenile left the orchard, but then came back a few minutes later with a .22 caliber rifle.

When the man confronted him the juvenile shot him in the stomach.

The victim survived the shot, but spent several days hospitalized.
