A Wheatland man is in jail with bail set at one-million-dollars following an alleged attempted murder at around 1:00 yesterday morning. 60-year—old Jeff Allen and the reported victim were visiting a residence in the 19,000 block of Mathew Road when Allen is accused of pointing a loaded shotgun at another man, pulling the trigger. However, according to a Yuba County Sheriff’s spokesperson, the other man involved pushed the barrel away in the millisecond required to avoid getting shot, at which time, the unidentified individual ‘hit Allen several times and detained him until officers arrived.’

The Appeal-Democrat reports a woman and her 2 children were also present, but no one was hit by the shotgun fire.
