Attempted Murder Arrest

Linda, Ca. – On Friday morning 11/26/21 at approximately 8:00 a.m., Yuba County Sheriff Deputies arrested 50-year-old Tong Yang of Linda for Attempted Murder, following the shooting of a 59-year-old woman inside a Linda residence. Deputies responded to a 911 call reporting a relative inside a home threatening family members with a gun, in the 2000 block of Horman Drive. Upon deputies’ arrival to the home, they heard two shots from inside the residence. Following the gunshots, several people exited the home and advised deputies that another family member inside was holding down the alleged shooter and that a woman was shot.

Deputies entered the residence to find Tong Yang held on the ground by another man and the injured gunshot victim on the floor. Deputies immediately detained Yang and rendered medical aid to the victim, who was later transported to the hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

Over a dozen family members were in the home at the time of the incident, including several children. The victim remains hospitalized with serious injuries, but is stable.

Yang was booked in into the Yuba County Jail for Attempted Murder, Aggravated Assault, Burglary, and Threats, with a bail of 1 million dollars. The investigation remains active and ongoing.
