Shooting in Eureka CA – Albers was wanted in connection with a shooting that took place on Tuesday inside a residence in the coastal hamlet of Eureka, which is located about 250 miles to the north of San Francisco. Two people, a man and a woman, were killed as a direct result of the incident. According to the Sheriff’s Office, the victims were the parents of a 4-year-old child who was recovered unharmed after officers were alerted to the residence by a 911 call during which the child’s screams could be heard in the background. The youngster was rescued unharmed after police were able to enter the home.
The toddler was found safe and sound after deputies were called to the property in response to a 911 call in which the child’s parents were identified as the victims of the incident. According to the authorities, Albers drove a third woman to the hospital, where the woman later received treatment for a gunshot wound and had surgery. Albers is accused of dropping off another woman at the hospital, which led to that woman having to undergo emergency surgery, and another woman being transported to the hospital. After then, the authorities assert that Albers fled the medical facility where he was being treated
Deputies, according to the authorities, pursued him on Interstate 101 through Arcata and into Trinidad, oftentimes going the other way in traffic and reaching speeds of up to one hundred miles per hour, until a member of the California Highway Patrol forced his vehicle off the road. The pursuit began in Arcata and continued into Trinidad. The Sheriff’s Office claims that the car continued to drive on the shoulder of the highway until it was struck by a sheriff’s patrol car, which rendered the vehicle unable to move forward after the collision.
The authorities have not divulged any information regarding the motive behind the shootings or the connection that exists between Albers and the individuals who were shot. Albers was reportedly booked into jail shortly after his capture on suspicion of murder, attempted murder, and endangering the welfare of a child. The charges against Albers stem from the time immediately following his capture. It was not immediately evident whether he had a lawyer to speak on his behalf; it was possible that he was representing himself in the situation. Prior to this, on the 30th of October, Albers was arrested and placed into the Humboldt County jail on charges of engaging in violent behavior with a spouse or co-habitant. On the other hand, neither the current standing of the case nor the particulars of the arrest could be accessed right once.
