RPD: Man Shot After Fight Over Drugs In East Redding

A fight over money and drugs led to an East Redding man being shot in the leg, according to Redding Police. Friday afternoon officers were called to Ricardo Avenue off Bechelli, where they found 40-year-old Nicholas Schafer, who had a gunshot wound in his leg. He identified the shooter as 23-year-old Richard Hanna, who was quickly found and arrested at an apartment on Azoulay Court off Victor. Detectives say Hanna had gone to meet Schafer to get drugs and money, but Schafer would not provide either and a fight broke out, during which Hanna pulled out a semi-auto pistol and shot Schafer in the upper part of his leg. Schafer was in stable condition Friday at a Redding hospital. Hanna was booked for assault with a deadly weapon and attempted murder.
