Man convicted and sentenced in connection to Hall Street shooting

The Lassen County District Attorney’s office announced Sean Antonio Gracia was convicted and sentenced in connection to a December shooting that injured one.

According to the Thursday, Feb. 11 post from the local department, Gracia, 24, pleaded guilty and was sentenced on Feb. 9 to eight  years in the California Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation for a shooting that occurred in the area of 780 Hall St. in Susanville on or about Dec. 6, 2020.

“Officers from the Susanville Police Department arrived on scene to discover an adult male suffering from an apparent gun shot wound(s) to the legs. The man received medical treatment for his wounds, but refused to give a statement regarding how they were inflicted or by whom. A witness on scene told police that the victim, Gracia, and third adult male were observed outside the apartment complex,” read the statement from the Lassen County District Attorney.  “The men exchanged words and then, according to the witness, Gracia, who was in possession of a shotgun, shot the victim in the lower area of his body. During a police canvass of the apartment complex, officers were unable to locate any other eye-witnesses to the event.”

Gracia was taken into custody the next day during a separate, unrelated incident.

He pled guilty to assault with a firearm and admitted to personally discharging the firearm and inflicting great bodily injury.

The involvement of the other adult male is still under investigation, the statement read. Anyone with information regarding the Dec. 6 shooting is encouraged to contact the Susanville Police Department or Lassen County District Attorney Investigations.
