Fort Bragg police search for man suspected in shooting at electrical substation

Fort Bragg police are looking for a man who fired a shotgun into PG&E equipment at an electrical substation on Saturday.

The man fled into a wooded area before police arrived, the Fort Bragg Police Department reported Tuesday. The police report did not indicate what, if any, damage was caused by the shooting.

Police found six, 12-gauge shotgun shells in the street next to the substation, according to the report.

The man is described as about 6-feet tall with shoulder length, shaggy blond hair, police said. He was wearing blue jeans and a white T-shirt with a logo on the back.

The suspect earlier was seen riding a Giant brand bicycle that was found abandoned near the substation, police said. They also believe a blue Fox brand riding jacket found at the site belonged to the suspect.

The Fort Bragg Police Department is investigating the incident along with the Department of Homeland Security, police said.

Police ask that anyone with information about the incident call the department at 961-2800 or the crime tip hotline at 961-3049.
