Synopsis: On 1-16-2011 at approximately 0900 Mendocino County Sheriffs Deputies were dispatched to Ukiah Valley Medical Center regarding a victim of a gunshot wound who was seeking treatment at the emergency room.

Deputies responded to the location and observed the victim had received a single gunshot wound to his left leg.

The victim advised deputies that on this date at approximately 0700 he was traveling in the 56800 Block of Bell Springs Road on his way to his secondary residence when he almost collided with the listed suspect vehicle (described as either a Chevrolet or Toyota Pickup red in color). The victim along with the suspect exited their vehicles and exchanged words, at which time the suspect fired one shot which struck the victim's leg. The suspect then got back into his truck and fled the location in a westerly location.

The victim's friend who was traveling with the victim then assisted the victim back into their truck and proceeded to drive to Ukiah Valley Medical Center for treatment.

The investigation is continuing.
