A manhunt in Valley Springs led to a shelter-in-place order after the death of a 9-year-old child Saturday. Multiple law enforcement agencies combed the area Saturday afternoon for a man believed to be armed and dangerous, described as a white or Latino male, with long gray hair, 6 feet tall, muscular build, last seen wearing a black long-sleeved shirt and blue pants.
Details were scarce, but television station KCRA in Sacramento reported that a 12-year-old boy encountered an intruder in his home. The man ran away and the boy went to check on his sister and found her with stab wounds. She was pronounced dead at a local hospital, the station reported.
Valley Springs Area Residents in the area were advised via Reverse 911 and other mass notification systems to lock their doors and report suspicious activity to the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office. Investigators ask anyone who sees someone in the area matching the man’s description to call 911 immediately.
This is not good, Boston has set a precedent so now this is becoming the norm. This is martial law, shelter in place is just whitewashing what it really is, martial law, as temporary as it may be. It is what it is.
