A 31-year-old male citizen had dialed 9-1-1 to report he shot a man, later identified as 50-year-old Patrick Michael Harris in the knee after an altercation at the BLM campground in Petrolia. The citizen reported Harris had attacked a female victim with a piece of rebar and he was forced to shoot Harris in the leg. The citizen reported that he was unable to remain on scene and provided dispatch with all of his contact information.
Deputies interviewed several witnesses and the female victim, the following is a summary of their investigation: Harris was acting bizarre and approached the female victim. Harris asked her if she was ready to die. At some point Harris got behind the female and started to choke her with the rebar. The female feared for her life and thought she was going to die.
