The Chico Police arrested three people after a shooting behind Walgreens on Nord Avenue.

Once police arrived on scene, a 911 call was made detailing that a man was spotted shooting a handgun at another man behind Walgreens, said Michael A Dunbaugh, Chief of Police.

Police arrested three men that fit the descriptions that the witness provided, Dunbaugh said.

“One of the men have been identified as the person who has done the shooting,” he said. “However we have not located the gun.”

One of the two other people who were with the gunman is being charged with possession of drugs and illegal weapons and the third man is being released on no charges, said Sergeant Rob Merrifield.

Police found a makeshift knife and brass knuckles on the two men found with the gunman, Dunbaugh said.

The target of the shooting fled the scene, so there are no known injuries.

Police do not believe the shooting was gang related.

The eyewitness was too shaken up for a comment.
