According to a Sheriff’s Office press release, a man was shot on Buchanan Road and Forest Road 2N11 in Tuolumne.

Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office logs said authorities were called at 8:48 p.m. by someone who said their renter “called him frantic saying he has been shot.”

The victim was described as a 40-year-old man. It was unknown who shot him, the log said.

According to the press release, deputies were contacted by a man at the property who came out of a travel trailer covered in blood.

He said several men in camouflage and masks had shot him and left in his off-road vehicle.

Tents with mairjuana plants inside were found on the property, the press release said.
