The Tehama County Sheriff's Office received a call from 63-year-old Gina Bird after 6:30 Sunday morning reporting that her son, Steven Irvine, Jr. had allegedly been randomly shooting a firearm around her residence in Campbellsville. Bird and her husband reportedly fled the residence in their car after Irvine reportedly started to shoot at them. Deputies met the couple at the Cohasset Store where they found bullet holes in their vehicle. Authorities say the two were unharmed. The couple told authorities that Irvine had allegedly been drinking all night and using either cocaine or methamphetamine.
The SWAT Team arrived to the property and Irvine was found in the bathroom and arrested without incident. According to a Tehama County Sheriff's Office press release, he was charged with attempted murder, shooting in a gross negligent manner, and criminal threats.
During a search of the residence deputies reportedly found 26 firearms and several high capacity magazines. Detectives are still going over the evidence, but the sheriff's office is anticipating filing additional charges with the Tehama County District Attorney's Office.
