Case Number 20R031998
On May 23rd, 2020, at 7:41 a.m., Officers from the Redding Police Department and California Highway Patrol responded to the report of a shooting at a residence in the 3400 block of Oasis Road. While in route to the scene, officers were advised by witnesses that the victim left the location and was being transported to the hospital by a friend. The victim was later observed by officers in the passenger seat of his friends vehicle as it pulled into the parking lot of Shasta Regional Medical Center. The victim, Quinton Lee Henderson (23 years of Montgomery Creek), was immediately attended to by medical staff and found to have gunshot wounds to his lower body.
At the same time, responding officers were informed that the suspect, Terry Lee Bond (38 years of Redding), was fleeing the scene in a vehicle which was being followed by a California Highway Patrol Airplane. Officers arrived in the area and located Bond’s vehicle at which point an enforcement stop was conducted and he was detained without incident.
Based on the circumstances, the Redding Police Department Investigations Division responded and assisted with the case. The investigation revealed a confrontation occurred between Henderson and Bond regarding a vandalism. During the confrontation, Bond exited his residence with a shotgun and pointed it at Henderson and his friend. Bond discharged the shotgun once into the ground. Bond then approached Henderson and struck him with the stock of the shotgun. The confrontation continued during which time Bond discharged the shotgun again, this time striking Henderson in the lower body.
During this investigation, multiple people were interviewed and several items of evidence were collected including a shotgun. Bond, who is prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition and is on formal probation for vehicle theft out of San Joaquin County, was arrested and booked into Shasta County Jail for assault with a firearm causing great bodily injury, felon in possession of a firearm and felon in possession of ammunition. Henderson is still being attended to by medical professionals and is expected to survive.
The Redding Police Department would like to thank the California Highway Patrol for their assistance during this investigation. We are also asking that anyone with additional information regarding this case call 530.225.4200.
