The Lake County Sheriff's Department says officials with six law enforcement agencies are searching on the ground and by air for 43-year-old Joshua Caleb Brown of Kelseyville. The CHP officers and Caltrans workers were confronted by Brown who had come out of a residence in the area. Shortly after a Sheriff's unit arrived on scene the male subject fired another shot towards the officer's direction. At approximately 10:52 a.m. he fired two additional shots at a State Parks Officer who was at a neighboring residence assisting with a perimeter. The suspect fled on foot in the area which consists of brush and trees.

Officers from the California Highway Patrol, Lakeport Police Department, Clearlake Police Department, Lake County D.A.'s Office, Mendocino County Sheriff's Office, and Sonoma County Sheriff's Office responded to assist.
