REDDING, Calif. - Redding Police say they are searching for the suspect in a shooting in south Redding.

Police say they found the victim, Christopher Clark of Redding, 36, in the living room of a home on Harrison Avenue Monday afternoon. He was suffering from gunshot wounds to the chest and abdomen. He was taken Mercy Medical Center where he underwent surgery for life-threatening wounds.

Police say witnesses identified the suspect as 22-year old Anthony Warren Chambers, formerly of Concord, California, but now residing as a transient in Redding. Chambers fled the scene and is currently at large.

At the time of the shooting Chambers was wanted by the Anderson Police Department for fleeing from police and discarding a firearm on June 11th, 2018. Chambers had also been arrested on June 5th, 2018 for possession of ammunition by a prohibited person and possession of methamphetamine. He was released June 6th, 2018, on his own recognizance pending a court date in July.

As a result of the Harrison Avenue shooting, Redding Police Department Investigators obtained a warrant for the arrest of Chambers. The warrant charges attempted murder, assault with a firearm, using a firearm in the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a prohibited person, and possession of ammunition by a prohibited person. Chambers may face additional charges as the investigation continues.

Chambers is aware of his wanted status and should be considered armed and dangerous. He sometimes uses the names James Chappman or Anthony Chapman. A current picture of Chambers and a possible vehicle associated with him are attached to this press release. Pictures will also be available via Redding Police Department social media pages. Anyone with information regarding the shooting, or the whereabouts of Anthony Warren Chambers, is asked to contact the Redding Police Department at (530)225-4200.
