SHINGLETOWN, Calif. - People in Shingletown say they are breathing a sigh of relief Thursday.

Daun Sanders, the man deputies say gunned down two people in Shingletown on Saturday is dead.

For almost five days Sanders was on the loose and people in Shingletown were on edge.

“Everybody was scared, it was frightening,” said Diane Ferrow, a longtime resident of the area.

But Wednesday afternoon, Sanders died on a southern California highway after a car slammed into him.

“We don’t have to worry about him,” said Ferrow. “We still lock our doors, but we don’t have to double lock them.”

“I’m sorry that the gentlemen died, but yeah I’m relieved,” said Mark Robertson of Shingletown. “I have an 80-year-old mother that I take care of and I was concerned.”

Deputies believe Sanders was the only shooter in the Shingletown double murder.
