Oroville, CA- On Wednesday, February 2, 2022, at approximately 7:35 p.m., the Oroville Police Department (OPD) began to receive 911 calls indicating there was a Greyhound bus outside the AM/PM store, located on Oroville-Dam Blvd. and Feather River Blvd. and a shooting was taking place inside the bus. OPD Officers responded and requested BCSO deputies respond to the location as well. Upon arrival, BCSO deputies and OPD officers located several subjects suffering from gunshot wounds. Despite lifesaving measures, one person was pronounced dead at the scene and others were transported to local hospitals.

The shooting suspect fled the scene prior to law enforcement arrival. Shortly after, the Oroville Police Department began to receive additional 911 calls with callers stating the suspect was inside Walmart, located on Cal Oak Road in Oroville. BCSO deputies, along with several allied law enforcement officers responded to Walmart and contacted the suspect, and located evidence that gave them cause to believe it was the suspect involved in the shooting. The suspect was taken into custody and transported to the Butte County Jail. The investigation is ongoing and more information will be released when it is available.

A press briefing has been scheduled for tomorrow, Thursday February 3, 2022, at 9:00 a.m. at the Butte County District Attorney’s Office, located at 25 County Center Drive, Oroville.
