Del Norte District Attorney's Office Investigating Fatal Officer-Involved Shooting

The Del Norte County District Attorney’s office is investigating a fatal officer-involved shooting that took place at a home near Bertsch and Peveler Avenue on Monday morning.

District Attorney Katherine Micks said Tuesday her investigators will investigate potential criminal liability associated with the incident, which occurred before 9:30 a.m.

According to the Del Norte County Sheriff’s Office’s Online Information System, deputies were called to the 2700 block of Peveler Avenue at 9:10 a.m. Monday for a welfare check on a subject that was “making 5150 statements after not passing his driving test.”

On Tuesday, Micks was unable to provide specifics about the incident that occurred, telling the Wild Rivers Outpost, “at this time I don’t even know the person’s name.”
