    Man accused of shooting Humboldt County deputy was deported in 2015, sheriff says


    Humboldt County Sheriff William Honsal III speaks during a press conference this morning in Eureka about the Mexico resident suspected of shooting a sheriff’s deputy with a shotgun in the shoulder in Ferndale on Sunday morning. Will Houston — The Times-Standard

    The man suspected of shooting a Humboldt County sheriff’s deputy in the left shoulder with a 12-gauge shotgun at a Ferndale dairy farm early Sunday morning was a Mexican national here illegally who was previously deported in 2015, according to Humboldt County Sheriff William Honsal.

    At a press conference this morning, Honsal said both the injured deputy, whose name is not being released at this time, and the suspect Hugo Parral-Aguirre, 30, are in stable condition and are no longer in the hospital. Honsal said the female deputy who was shot could have been killed if the shot had struck her a few inches away.

    Honsal said the deputy is the second law enforcement officer who was shot this year in Humboldt County.

    “It has become a very, very violent place and we see it out in the hills, we see it in our communities,” Honsal said. “We are not immune to it because we wear a uniform. It’s very disturbing to me that, again, that this is a deputy sheriff who was there to investigate, to help people. And instead of someone giving up they decide to shoot it out with law enforcement.”

    The incident began shortly after midnight on Sunday after a neighbor reported a dispute between two men on the 700 block of Coppini Lane in Ferndale, Honsal said. A deputy and a sheriff’s sergeant arrived on scene shortly before 12:50 a.m. in marked vehicles and approached a small barn-like structure on the property. A woman then ran out of the door of the residence saying she had been held against her will by Parral-Aguirre, who was allegedly trespassing, Honsal said. Investigators later learned that Parral-Aguirre had allegedly attempted to shoot the woman’s boyfriend earlier that evening whom the suspect had known previously, according to Honsal. Honsal said the boyfriend was uninjured and was at the scene. Honsal said the nature of the dispute between the boyfriend and Parral-Aguirre is still under investigation.

    The woman also told deputies at the scene that Parral-Aguirre was armed, prompting both the deputy and sergeant to pull out their guns when they saw Parral-Aguirre in the barn, Honsal said. After both deputies ordered Parral-Aguirre to drop his weapon, the suspect allegedly fired one round from a 12-gauge shotgun, striking the female deputy in the left shoulder above her bullet-proof vest, according to Honsal. Both the deputy and sergeant returned fire while finding cover for both themselves and the woman at the scene, Honsal said.

    Officers from the Eureka, Arcata, Rio Dell, Ferndale, and Humboldt State University police departments along with the California Highway Patrol and California Department of Fish and Wildlife responded to the scene after the deputies requested aid. The injured deputy was taken to St. Joseph hospital by ambulance as the sheriff’s office SWAT team searched for Parral-Aguirre.

    SWAT officers found Parral-Aguirre on a bed in the bottom floor of the residence at about 4:30 a.m. The suspect had three gunshot wounds, Honsal said.

    Parral-Aguirre refused orders in both Spanish and English and resisted arrest when the SWAT team entered the residence, Honsal said.

    Parral-Aguirre’s gunshot wounds were not life-threatening and he was booked in the jail after being treated at St. Joseph Hospital in Eureka, according to Honsal.

    Parral-Aguirre is suspected of felony attempted murder of a peace officer and false imprisonment charges, Honsal said. The Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office must file any criminal charges by Wednesday, Honsal said.

    Parral-Aguirre was not employed at the dairy, is in the country illegally and has family in the Ferndale area, Honsal said.

    Parral-Aguirre had previously been arrested by the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office for battery in 2008, was transferred to a federal prison for entering the country illegally and voluntarily returned to Mexico, according to Honsal.

    Honsal said Parral-Aguirre had also been deported by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency in 2015, but Honsal did not have information on when he had returned to the country.

    Honsal said state law would prevent his office from honoring a request by Immigration and Customs Enforcement to hold Parral-Aguirre, stating that it will be up to the agency to file a warrant to arrest him for illegal immigration.

    “Once there is a holding order by the superior court for these felony charges, he is eligible to be turned over to ICE at that time,” Honsal said. “But we’re not focused on that. We’re focused on our criminal charges here and proving those criminal charges in our county.”

    All deputies involved in the shooting have been placed on administrative leave, with Honsal saying that he will release their names later this week.

    “My deputies did an outstanding job,” Honsal said. “Number one, protecting the female and protecting themselves. They reacted exactly like they were supposed to do, exactly as they were trained to do. ... I think they displayed considerable courage through this whole incident. I’m very happy, very thankful that a deputy didn’t get killed over this.”

    The county’s ALERT mass notification system was used to alert residents in the area about the ongoing investigation, Honsal said. First District Humboldt County Supervisor Rex Bohn praised the use of the alert system considering that the incident temporarily disrupted nearby dairy operations that were about to start milking cows that morning.

    “I’ve got phone calls this morning very appreciative you guys did that,” Bohn said.

    Trump needs to declare all illegal aliens including visa overstays, fugitives, to trigger laws that hold people accountable for aiding and harboring fugitives. I'm not sure what these laws are, but I'm sure if you aided a felon on the run, something would happen to you, so whatever that body of law is, we need to trigger it. Employers and friends, families and churches are just flipping the bird at aiding and abetting illegal alien laws, so RAMP IT UP, declare them fugitives. It's worth a try to stop this sanctuary, harboring, aiding, abetting and hiringof illegal aliens. I think doing this with a fugitive can trigger accomplice after the fact laws and those are really serious laws that get you charged with the crimes they committed.

    No warrant should be required. Besides that, hopefully he'll be serving some serious time for attempted murder, kidnapping, and assault before he is sent back to Mexico!
