Police in Ukiah asking for the public’s help to find whoever shot and tried to kill a teenager. The Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office reports getting a report of a shooting yesterday in the 3000 Block of Sol Lane, just off of Lake Mendocino Drive. They got there and found an 18 year old man with several gunshot wounds. He was taken to a hospital for treatment, but they don’t have an update on his condition. Police report there may have been someone seen running from the area, but they have no description on the alleged shooter. They’re asking anyone with info or if they saw anything suspicious or a car in the area of the shooting to call the Sheriff’s office.

There’s been an arrest after reports of a grass fire behind Sears. Police got a call near the fire Saturday morning which was quickly put out after the first engine got there. They say they questioned someone then arrested them on suspicion of arson. Police say there were several suspicious fires along the railway tracks, the biggest near Mason Street near medical office buildings across the street from Adventist Health Ukiah Valley. The Ukiah Valley Fire Authority says that fire was suspicious too. They’re asking the public for help figuring out who set it and now say the person arrested has admitted to the Sears area fire. They’re urging anyone who may have seen anything suspicious near the tracks to call 911.

Illegal fireworks going off have Fort Bragg police out. On Monday cops say they went to Glass Beach Drive and found three males, one adult and two juveniles, along with two females, one adult and one juvenile, near a parked car at the end of Glass Beach Drive. Police say while talking to the group they found obvious evidence of the three males being part of a criminal street gang, then they found a loaded semi-automatic handgun near the car. Police interviewed everyone and found the three males were in possession of the firearm before police got there, so they were arrested, and the two females were released. The man was taken to Mendocino County Jail and the two male juveniles went to the Mendocino County Juvenile Hall. Police say one of the kids gave police a fake name so cops wouldn’t know he was part of a gang.
