Lucerne man dies after Tuesday night shooting

LUCERNE, Calif. – A man shot at a Lucerne residence on Tuesday night has died, according to the Lake County Sheriff's Office.

Lt. Steve Brooks identified 51-year-old Christopher Michael Wray as the shooting victim.

Brooks said deputies were dispatched to a residence located in the 6000 block of 12th Avenue in Lucerne at 10:40 p.m. Tuesday on the report of shots fired.

A witness said that after hearing a gunshot, he noticed what appeared to be a white male adult with short hair, approximately 40 to 50 years of age, wearing a black jacket and dark jeans running from the area of the 12th Avenue address, according to Brooks.

Brooks said the witness told deputies that the male subject was running southbound on 12th Avenue toward the Tower Mart gas station and appeared to be holding a handgun.

Deputies attempted to locate the subject as they were responding to the address, but did not see anyone. Brooks said the deputies arrived on scene within approximately one minute of being dispatched.

When they arrived on scene, the deputies located the male victim – later identified as Wray – who appeared to have suffered a gunshot wound, Brooks said.

Radio reports indicated Northshore Fire requested an air ambulance and intended to rendezvous with CalStar 4 at the Sutter Lakeside Hospital helipad.

However, Brooks said Wray died at the hospital.

Brooks said the Sheriff’s Major Crimes Unit and Crime Scene investigators responded to the scene, where they have been conducting interviews and processing evidence. Detectives remained at the scene on Wednesday afternoon.

The investigation is ongoing and detectives are pursuing all leads to identify and apprehend the suspect, Brooks said.

Anyone with information pertinent to the case is asked to call the Lake County Sheriff’s Office at 707-263-2690.
