OROVILLE SHOOTING INVESTIGATION
Oroville, CA- On Tuesday, March 19, 2019, at approximately 4:23 p.m., the Butte County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) received several 911 calls from residents living in the 2400 block of V-6 Road in Oroville reporting shots being fired in the area. Eight deputies and a sergeant immediately responded to the area to investigate. Once there, deputies learned prior to the shots being fired, an altercation had occurred between Myosha Chappell, age 21 of Oroville, and family members who reside at a home on V-6 Road. Chappell’s boyfriend, identified as Santino Brownwebster, age 21 of Oroville, also arrived on the scene prior to shots being fired and was involved in the altercation. Shortly after, witnesses say Brownwebster retrieved a handgun out of a vehicle parked nearby and fired approximately 4-6 rounds, striking two residences, and narrowly missing several people, including two children sitting in a car nearby. One residence which was struck twice by gunfire had three children and one adult in the residence at the time of the shooting. No one was injured.
Brownwebster and Chappell fled before deputies arrived and their location is unknown at this time. They are both facing felony charges of assault with a deadly weapon and Brownwebster is facing additional charges of shooting at inhabited dwellings. They were last seen in a white 2005 Ford Focus. Brownwebster is described as black male adult, six feet tall, weighing 185 pounds with brown hair and eyes. Chappell is described as a white female adult, five feet five inches tall, weighing 216 pounds. Anyone with information on their whereabouts is urged to contact BCSO at (530) 538-7322.
