The Humboldt County’s Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of a 38 year old who was found with multiple gunshot wounds after “an out-of-area attorney” called to report the victim, according to a news release.

The deceased man has been identified as Wade Daniel Harris and an autopsy is scheduled for Aug. 18.

The HCSO release states deputies responded to the property on Old Harris Road in Garberville around noon on Aug. 14, where Harris was found lying in the driveway.

A man, who was not identified by HCSO, was found at the location and the “subject declined to provide a statement to law enforcement,” according to the release.

“Deputies collected evidence on scene and the subject was released pending further investigation,” the release states.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office at (707) 445-7251 or the Sheriff’s Office Crime Tip line at (707) 268-2539.
