Man found shot following apparent home invasion incident

 

LAKEPORT – The Lake County Sheriff's Office is investigating what appears to be a home invasion and attempted robbery that resulted in a man being shot several times at a Lakeport residence on Tuesday morning.


Sheriff's deputies and the Lakeport Police Department were dispatched to a residence on S. Main Street south of Kmart shortly after 9 a.m. on Tuesday morning on the report of a man yelling for help, according to Capt. James Bauman of the Lake County Sheriff's Office.


Bauman said when the first two patrol units arrived at the scene, they found a man bound and hog-tied on the ground outside of the home.


The victim, who identity has not been released thus far, appeared to have been beaten and shot multiple times, Bauman said.


He said the evidence found at the scene indicates the assault may have been the result of an apparent home invasion and attempted robbery.


Rescue personnel from the Lakeport Fire Protection District transported the man to Sutter Lakeside Hospital where he was immediately transferred to a REACH air ambulance and flown out of county, said Bauman.


The assault victim’s condition was not known late Tuesday, Bauman said.


Bauman said sheriff's officials are continuing to investigate the incident, took place just outside of the city limits.
