The Trinity County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting incident in Burnt Ranch, Sheriff Tim Saxon said.

The report came in this afternoon that someone had broken into a house and the owner shot at the suspect, who fled, Saxon said.

The wounded individual was contacted and flown out for medical care, Saxon said.

This is no longer an active shooting scene, Saxon said. Units are on-scene and the incident is being investigated.

Saxon said more information will be released when it’s available.
