From the Times-Standard Media Center:

A crossbow attack left one person dead and another with injuries off New Navy Base Road in Samoa on Sunday, September 8, 2013.

Two suspects, a black female age 25-30 and a white male age 25-30 fled the scene on bikes later retreating into the dunes.

Law enforcement with a K9 unit searched the area following a trail towards the ocean; air support could not assist due to low fog.

Little information is available at this time.  Further details are expected to be released by the Sheriff’s Office as more information becomes available.

**UPDATE September 9, 2013**

From the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office:  Suspects Sought, One Identified

On Sunday September 8, 2013 at about 12:32 PM, the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Dispatch Center received a 911 call of a possible injured man lying on the southbound shoulder of HWY 255 and New Navy Base Road, Eureka (approximately 100 yards north of this intersection).

While deputies were responding, a second person called the Sheriff’s Office to report the injured male appeared to have been shot twice with an arrow and there were two people fleeing the area on bicycles, possibly suspects or involved with this incident.

One witness attempted to detain these individuals, at which point the suspects abandoned their bicycles and fled into a heavily wooded area on the west side of the road.

Deputies arrived in the area around 12:39 PM and located a 41-year old male victim who had suffered three injuries that would later be determined to be from a crossbow.  The victim had a grazing scalp wound, an arrow to the hip and an injury on his shin from a glancing arrow injury.  The victim was transported to an area hospital where he was treated and released for his injuries.

Deputies then located a second victim, found deceased, approximately 200 yards west and into the wooded area from where the first victim was located.  This 44-year old male suffered a single arrow to the face.  The names of the victims being withheld at this point.

An extensive manhunt was undertaken in the heavily wooded and coastal area for the two suspects. Assisting was a helicopter from the California Highway Patrol, Wardens from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, Officers from the Arcata Police Department along with a K9 from that agency, Deputies from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office and Sheriff’s Office Special Services including ATV’s for searching the beach, and Rangers from the Bureau of Land Management.

The search was called off at approximately 11:45 PM.

Detectives from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office have been assigned to this investigation. The motive for this incident appears to be the belief of the suspects that the victims may have stolen items from their transient camp.  The victims are homeless and have been occupying an encampment for the last several months.  It appears the suspects were newly arrived to the area and had a crude encampment, which a search warrant was sought for and served on.

The Sheriff’s Office is seeking the assistance of the public for any information on the suspects in this case:

Phoenix Triton King, white male, DOB 09-12-92, short blond hair, blue eyes and black heavy framed glasses, 5‘7” and 140 pounds. 

Mr. King is believed to be from Lake County, California.

King is traveling with the second suspect in this case, who happens to be a 16-year old female, and for that reason, her name is not being released:

Female, black or dark skin, 16 years of age, shoulder length “frizzy” hair that is most often worn in a bun, black hair, brown eyes, 5‘0”, 120 pounds.

The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the arrest of both individuals for Murder and Attempted Murder.  These individuals are to be considered dangerous and potentially armed.  Anyone who believes they have seen these individuals are encouraged to not approach and telephone 911 with information.

Detective Jen Turner has been assigned as the lead investigator on this incident.  Anyone having further information on this case is asked to call
her at 707-268-3642.

 

**UPDATE September 10, 2013**

Both suspects were arrested yesterday near Friends of the Dunes Humboldt Coastal Nature Center in Manila.
