SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - Shasta County Sheriff's arrested a wanted man who was resisting arrest and held at gunpoint on Friday morning.

Holly Bail Bonds called Shasta County Sheriff’s Office when an employee tried to contact Brian McCain, a 40-year-old Redding resident, for failing to appear in court for his bond.

Julie Mitchell of Holly Bail Bonds reported she spoke with McCain when he made a statement he was going to kill everyone at the Win-River Casino. Mitchell spoke with McCain’s family members, who said he was becoming aggressive and threatening to kill all the residents.

Shasta County Sheriff’s Office said they had received phone calls about McCain for reports of him shooting a rifle inside the residence, threats to harm the staff at Win-River Casino, statement of “suicide by cop,” and reports of him walking around the casino with firearms and knives.

McCain had an active felony warrant in Tehama County for violently resisting an officer.

Deputies were assisted by California Highway Patrol Airship and Cal Fire Law Officer outside the residence at 1961 Redding Rancheria Road, located behind the Casino.

Sheriff’s said they contacted the family who left the residence because they did not feel safe when McCain was erratic inside.

Deputies attempted to get McCain out of the residence by using a public announcement speaker, but he was located by the CHP airship running out the back of the residence.

Deputies chased and located McCain in the backyard of a residence on the 1800 block of Redbank Road. At this point, he was held at gunpoint when he continued to be non-compliant with deputies.

Additional deputies arrived on the scene, and McCain became compliant and arrested.

McCain was booked into Shasta County Jail for Resisting Arrest and on his felony warrant, according to deputies.

It's been a warm and windy day for northern California with isolated showers breaking out over the higher terrain. We aren't done with the windy weather quite yet, but a quieter and warmer pattern is coming soon.
