LASSEN COUNTY, Calif. - On Monday at approximately 12 a.m. deputies were dispatched to a residence near Birch St. and 7th St. in Westwood regarding a report of a shooting victim, according to the Lassen County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies located a male victim sitting on the front porch of the residence, suffering from a single gunshot wound to his lower right leg.

Sierra Medical Services Alliance paramedics and CAL FIRE personnel provided medical care approximately one minute after deputies determined the area was safe and provided basic first-aid to the victim.

The male victim was transported to Banner Lassen Medical Center in Susanville with non life-threatening injuries. He was treated and released Monday morning, according to the Lassen County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies obtained statements from citizens in the area, processed the crime scene and collected evidence.

The Lassen County Sheriff’s Office said there is no reason to believe that the incident is related to a shooting reported to deputies in Pine Town approximately two and a half weeks ago.

The investigation is ongoing and being conducted by deputies and investigative units.
