OROVILLE, Calif. – The Butte County Sheriff’s Office said they have arrested a teen after a 12-year-old was shot in Oroville on Sunday, Oct. 11.

Deputies said they responded to a report of a shooting at a residence near the 5300 block of Margo Lane in Oroville. Authorities said they located a 12-year-old who had been shot.

The victim was transported to a local hospital, and later transferred by helicopter to a Sacramento area hospital. According to BCSO, the 12-year-old victim is currently in stable condition.

Authorities said they spent the last two days investigating. On Monday, Oct. 12, detectives served a search warrant related to the shooting at a residence located in the 300 block of Lausen Street in Oroville.

Detectives said they determined a 16-year-old shot the victim. The 16-year-old was booked at the Butte County Juvenile Hall on felony charges related to the shooting, according to deputies.

The sheriff’s office said in a news release Tuesday that because this is an ongoing investigation involving a juvenile victim and juvenile suspect, they will not be releasing further details at this time.

The Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with additional information about this investigation to contact Detective Jason Miller or Detective Zach Price at 530-538-7671.
