Sheriff's Office investigate shooting incident

At about 6:40 PM last night Sonoma County Sheriff's Deputies and the Henry One helicopter responded to a call of a shooting at River Rd and Trenton-Healdsburg Rd in Forestville.

Upon arrival crew members from the helicopter spotted two men down. One was determined to be deceased and the other had life threatening injuries. The helicopter crew flew the injured man to a local hospital where he is now on life support and is not expected to survive.

Both men, in their 40's, have been identified however their next of kin have not been located.

Detectives have been working throughout the night and into this morning in an attempt to determine what happened and identify a possible suspect. There is a marijuana grow at the site of the incident and it is suspected that marijuana was somehow involved in their deaths.

More information will be given as it becomes available.
