Hoopa man shot by unknown assailants

HOOPA - A Hoopa man is in critical condition after being shot by suspects off of Highway 96.

Hoopa Tribal Police say a 39-year old man sleeping in his trailer was awaken by a loud vehicle. He walked out on his porch surprising the suspects who shot him in his lower abdomen and fled in their truck. An anonymous tip to tribal police brought emergency personnel to the Big Hill Road residence.

The victim was flown to a Redding hospital and remains in critical condition. The suspects are still on the loose.
