Chico police are looking for information on an attempted murder

The Chico Police Department is seeking information on an attempted murder in the Avenues last weekend.

Officers were dispatched to the 600 block of West First Avenue at about 5 a.m. Saturday (April 8) in response to a 911 report that someone had been shot. The caller reported seeing a group of people arguing outside of an apartment complex, a muzzle flash, and heard gunshots before the group scattered.

Responding officers found a .32-caliber semi-automatic handgun in a nearby grassy area. While on the scene, officers received reports that a 28-year-old man with two nonlethal gunshot wounds had been transported to Enloe Medical Center. He was treated and released.

Neighbors were contacted, but couldn’t provide details. The CPD is asking anyone with information to call 897-4911.
