Fatal shooting reported late Saturday in Spring Valley

CLEARLAKE OAKS, Calif. – A shooting that occurred late Saturday night was reported to have claimed a woman's life.

The incident was reported shortly before 10 p.m. in the Spring Valley subdivision east of Clearlake Oaks.

Sheriff's deputies, along with medics and firefighters from Northshore Fire Protection District and Cal Fire, responded to the 3100 block of Wolf Creek Road on the report of a gunshot victim, according to radio reports.

Reports from the scene indicated a woman was shot by her husband during an argument.

Medic units arrived at the address shortly before 10:15 p.m. and were directed to stage until sheriff's deputies secured the scene.

They were allowed to go in a few minutes later, and then incoming units were canceled, with the units already on scene released just over 10 minutes from arrival, radio reports indicated.

Sheriff's deputies on scene were reported to have one person in custody, with a mortuary called to the scene, according to the scanner.
