Registered Sex Offender Arrested After Fatal Shooting In Shasta Lake

There was a fatal shooting in Shasta Lake City Thursday night. The sheriff’s office was called at 11:30PM to a home on Pancake Hill by a woman who sad she and 58-year-old Dwight Stewart Honeycutt had returned home and found someone in their house. They knew the man because he was their neighbor and they had apparently used drugs together earlier in the day. The resulting argument reportedly led Honeycutt to shoot the man. He was transported by ambulance and later died. Honeycutt is a convicted felon and registered sex offender who is prohibited from possessing guns, but he allegedly shot the victim with a sawed-off shotgun that belonged to him. During questioning, detectives say he told them he shot the unarmed man out of anger because he had made advances toward his girlfriend. Honeycutt is in jail on a Million Dollars bail. The name of the dead man has not been released.
