The Humboldt County Sheriff's Office has identified the man who died Wednesday after being dropped off at the Elk Camp Fire station near Orick with a gunshot wound as Benjamin Scott Thomas, 40, of Trinidad.

Thomas was reportedly driven to the station around 6 p.m. on Wednesday, June 23, and left there by "multiple unknown individuals," according to the sheriff's office. Lifesaving efforts at the scene were unsuccessful and gunshot wounds were later determined to be Thomas' cause of death.

The homicide case remains under investigation and the sheriff's office asks that anyone with information call 445-7251 or the crime tip line at 268-2539.
