She, another woman, a man and two children were seated in the home on the 400 block of North Reap Street when they heard what sounded like a firecracker coming through the window. When the female victim re- alized her injury was a gun- shot wound, she was trans- ported to Banner Lassen Med- ical Center. None of the other occupants was injured. Neighbors also reported hearing what .sounded like firecrackers. One neighbor said, "I al- ways thought I was safe in Su- sanville. I would leave my door unlocked or sit on my porch, but it wasn't even 10 p.m. when this happened. Our city council needs to hire more police and let these punks know we aren't going to let them take over. Every- one knows we only have a few cops on duty at a time." Police Chief Jeff Atkinson said in a statement that the investigation is in its initial stage. His department con- tinues to seek any witnesses to the incident. If anyone has information regarding this incident, she may call the Su- sanville Police Department at 257-5603 and remain anonymous. A little aRer midnight Friday, July 30, officers responded to a restaurant after what sounded like gunshots in the area. Officers arrived to find 29-year-old Susanville resi- dent Nathan Duane Wilson had apparently sustained two gunshot wounds to the leg. During the police investi- gation, Wilson told officers he was shot by someone he knew after they got into a verbal argument in the drive- through area of the fast-food restaurant. The suspect fled prior to po- lice arriving on scene. Offi- cials said they are not ready to release the suspect's name because the investigation is ongoing. CH D announces leadership change Joshua Sebold Staff Writer more limited in the small town, in the small area. That's why it's really impera- tive for us to work together with the other allied agencies in the area." Carpenter encouraged com- munity members to come meet with him any time. "If there's anything we can do to make Quincy a better place to live, that's our goal." The Quincy Area California Highway Patrol Office recent- ly experienced a leadership change; previous commander Paul Davis received a promo- tion to captain and became the new commander in Ukiah in Mendocino County. Lieutenant Commander Bruce Carpenter has taken over in the Quincy Area Office. Carpenter has been with the CHP for 28 years, after fill- ing out an application when a fellow soldier in the 82nd Air- borne Division handed it to him in the early '80s. The lieutenant said he would feel at home in this area as he grew up in a small Minnesota town of 1,100 peo- ple and spent eight years in Chico. The rest of his time has been split between Southern California and the Bay Area. CHP officers usually have to move around quite a bit to get promotions, chasing the next career step around the state. Speaking about his philoso- phy on the CHP's role, Car- penter said, "I believe we have to be out there and be visible, but we also need to be a part of the community and be active. "We have to treat people with respect and we have to be professional out there and that's very, very important. The bigger cities tend to have more resources.
