SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - The Shasta County Sheriff's Office is searching for a man who is believed to be armed and dangerous after deputies responded to reports of a gunshot from the Montgomery Creek Market.

Deputies from the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office Burney Division responded to the Montgomery Creek Market, to the report of a shooting that occurred in the parking lot at about 8:15 p.m., deputies said.

Once deputies arrived on the scene, they said all of the involved parties had left. Deputies said they were able to locate the victim, 28-year-old Matreyo Mastrangelo-Mitchell, from Montgomery Creek.

Throughout the investigation, deputies said the incident was captured on surveillance video. The video showed the victim, Mitchell sitting in his car in the parking lot of the Montgomery Creek Market when 24-year-old Shane Montgomery arrived in his car.

Montgomery was seen exiting his car with what appeared to be a long gun, as Mitchell attempted to escape; a single gunshot can be seen on the surveillance footage, according to deputies.

Mitchell was not injured during this incident.

Deputies attempted to locate Montgomery throughout the night but he has not been located at this time.

This is still an ongoing investigation. Deputies said Montgomery is still believed to be armed and dangerous.

We had a nice cooldown compared to yesterday, but we're still warmer than average here in northern California, and the breezes are blowing. We'll have similar highs Friday but the wind will get stronger, and more wind is coming.
