Covelo shooting still under investigation
An investigation into a Monday night shooting that left a Covelo woman hospitalized with at least one gunshot wound, continued Wednesday but a Mendocino County sheriff's official said the victim was not cooperating.
The 47-year-old woman has been interviewed twice by detectives, sheriff's Capt. Greg Van Patten said. But he said she claimed she didn't know who shot her and that it occurred in a rural area on the side of the road.
When deputies first answered the call Monday about 8 p.m., they were sent to an area near Highway 116 and Mendocino Pass Road. Detectives still are trying to find where the shooting occurred.
The woman was shot at least once, with the bullet traveling from the lower part of her body into her torso. She was expected to recover.
