Sheriff’s Office Investigates Incident of a Beaten Man

Churchill County Sheriff's Office shield

A local farmer on Stillwater Road was awakened to find a bloody adult male subject standing at his front door this morning around 3:40 a.m. The male asked for assistance and the Churchill County Sheriff’s Office and medics from Banner Churchill Community Hospital responded. 

The male, a long time Fallon resident and a member of the Fallon Paiute Shoshone Tribe, stated he had been beaten after getting kicked out of a vehicle and had walked to find help. A more detailed statement was unable to be obtained due to the extent of his injuries. 

The male was flown via Care Flight to Reno where he is listed in critical condition. 

Investigation showed a blood trail from the farmer’s yard down to the road to where it is believed this incident occurred. Members of the Churchill County Sheriff’s Office and Search and Rescue then began a detailed search of the area as clues to who did this and what exactly happened were sought. Later in the day, a search and seizure warrant was obtained and served by the Fallon Paiute Shoshone Tribal Police and the Churchill County Sheriff’s Office on tribal land. 

This investigation is still ongoing and we will provide updates as this case develops. The Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the Fallon Paiute Shoshone Tribal Police for all the assistance they provided.
