At approximately 10:00 PM on 3/24/17, Clovis Police received a 911 call regarding possible shots fired with an injured person in the front yard of a residence on Acacia near First St. Officers arrived within two minutes, contacted the victim, and determined the suspect was still inside of the home. After officers arrived on scene, an additional shot was fired from the suspect. The injured male was turned over to EMS and was treated for a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to his hand. Officers contained the situation until SWAT arrived. After several announcements by our SWAT team and Negotiators, the suspect exited the home and was detained without further incident.
83 year-old Donald Hunter was last seen by neighbors on Wednesday, February 15, at about 8AM near his home near Villa/Shaw in Clovis.
Hunter is a white male adult, 5'7, 150 lbs, and was last seen driving his tan 2004 Jeep Wrangler. The Jeep has CA license plate number 5JBL500, with chrome front/rear bumpers, and a Nebraska football team tire cover on the back.
Hunter is considered "at-risk" because of medical conditions.
The Clovis Police Department honored its 20-member Police Explorer Post last night (1/28) following a banquet at the Clovis Rodeo Hall just south of Clark Intermediate School on Clovis Avenue. During 2016, these young men and women donated more than 2,400 total hours of community service, in addition to training for a total of 1,412 hours (70 per Explorer). The post offered its support for more than 40 events and special details this past year.
