A man suffered gunshot wounds during an altercation in the 900 block of Gray Avenue on Monday, according to a Yuba City Police Department news release.
At around 4:30 p.m. Monday, officers responded to reports of shots fired. They located a 21-year-old man who had suffered gunshot wounds. It was determined that a physical altercation took place in a parking lot, and during the altercation, shots were fired. The victim was transported to Adventist Health/Rideout where he was treated and released for non-life threatening injuries. The suspect has not been located and the weapon has not been recovered as of late Friday, according to the release.
During the investigation, Micah Arciba, 19, of Yuba City, was identified as being with the victim at the time of the shooting.
