LUCERNE – An early morning shooting in Lucerne on Monday sent one man to the hospital.

The man was assaulted in an incident inside a home on 6287 Country Club Drive between Third and Fourth avenues at around 2:30 a.m., officials reported.

Northshore Fire Protection District Chief Jim Robbins said two medic units – one from Lucerne and one from Nice – along with an engine and a battalion chief were dispatched to the scene at 2:38 a.m. and staged while sheriff's deputies secured the scene.

Robbins said the shooting victim was conscious and talking to medics.

“The best our people could tell is he had six bullet holes in him – three in his abdomen and three in his lower extremities,” Robbins said.

Robbins said REACH air ambulance was called to the scene, with the landing zone being set up at Lucerne Harbor Park. The helicopter landed just before 3:15 a.m. and lifted off a short time later to transport the shooting victim to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital where he remains in care.

Sheriff's detectives continued to work at the crime scene throughout the morning. A suspect has not yet been taken into custody.

Officials have indicated they will release more details about the shooting later Monday afternoon.
