Just before 4:00 Thursday afternoon, Eureka Police responded to a report of shots fired at Amy's Delights on West Harris and Union Streets. Once on scene, officers determined no shots were fired. Two or three subjects had entered the restaurant. A physical altercation ensued, then the male victim was stabbed in the back according to Captain Brian Stephens. His injuries are described as non-life threatening. The suspects fled the scene in an unknown direction of travel.
Eureka Police Captain Brian Stephens said, "We're receiving great cooperation from business owners in the area not only including the location it happened, but others so we can track down which direction everybody left in, get further descriptions. And at that time we can put out further information once we're able to confirm it."
