Shooting in Orleans

Posted By on Wed, Nov 25, 2009 at 12:38 PM

After being shot last night, Hoopa resident Nolan Eugene Colegrove, 27, managed to seek help at an Orleans home where medical personnel responded and transported him to a nearby hospital, according to a Sheriff's Department press release. Colegrove is in stable condition.

At 10:15 last night, Humboldt County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a call from a residence on Red Cap Road, where they found Colegrove lying shot in front of the house, the release states. The deputies learned that Colegrove and a companion were walking on Red Cap Road when a black, full-size Chevrolet pickup truck approached and suddenly stopped, then fired multiple shots, striking Colegrove.

The release states rather enigmatically that, "Investigators are not releasing how many times Colegrove was struck or where on his body he was wounded."

Anyone with information is asked to call Sheriff's Detective Troy Garey at 268-3643.
