BIG BEND, Calif. - A person on Big Bend Road was bleeding from gunshot wounds to the head and neck said a spokesperson from the CAL FIRE Butte Unit. They sent personnel from Jarbo Gap Station 36 to the scene shortly after noon on Sunday.

Medical responders received permission to enter the area from the Butte County Sheriff's Office and a landing zone for a medical airlift was set up at the Pines Hardware Store. That air flight order was cancelled a little more than a half an hour after the initial report of the incident was received.
