Gridley, CA- On August 12, 2022, at approximately 2:01 a.m., the Butte County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) responded to a report of a shooting in the 200 block of Highway 99, Gridley. Upon arrival, deputies contacted a victim who had been shot. The victim was immediately transported to a local hospital where he received medical treatment and remains in critical condition.
During the investigation, detectives located evidence that gave them cause to believe Francisco Magana, age 35, of Gridley was involved in the shooting.
Detectives determined Magana was residing in an encampment located off HWY 99 outside Gridley. The BCSO SWAT Team responded to the encampment and attempted to arrest Magana. Magana fled the area on foot. With assistance from a BCSO helicopter, BCSO SWAT team members conducted an extensive search of the area surrounding the encampment. After an hour-long search, SWAT team members located Magana. Magana was placed under arrest for a felony count of home invasion robbery and for violating the terms and conditions of his parole.
This is an active, ongoing investigation. The Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with additional information about this investigation to contact Detective Zach Price at 530-538-7671.
