19 year old (alleged) drug runner arrested

Surviving suspect from police chase identified
A 19-year-old man from Antioch who survived an apparent self-inflicted gunshot to the head was arrested at a Sacramento hospital Monday for his alleged involvement in an armed marijuana robbery May 11 that ended with the death of his apparent associate David Fields.

Brian Cole Fiore was arrested at 5:15 p.m. Monday and booked into the Sacramento County Jail on suspicion of attempted murder, robbery, negligent discharge of a firearm and evading a peace officer with wanton disregard for safety, the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office reported.

According to HCSO information, Fiore will be transported to the Humboldt County jail, but it is uncertain when.

Following an autopsy conducted over the weekend, investigators believe Fields, 21, was shot shortly before the vehicle he was riding in flipped over an embankment along the roadside, and rolled to a stop 130 feet down into the ravine below.

Investigators know Field's death was caused by a gunshot wound, said Deputy Coroner Charlie VanBuskirk, but are uncertain whether death was a homicide, a suicide or an accident.

Fields' mother, Shirley Stephens, identified her son's body at the Humboldt County Coroner's Office the day after the shooting. Fields, who was right-handed, was shot in the left temple, she said....


  1. I think Contra Costa County is also looking for him, for a incident he was involved in on 4/20/09. Hwen he robbed someone in Pleasant Hill for the same thing. Pleasant Hill P.D might not be doing their job, though because they have been notified

  2. Contra Costa is giong to have to wait for a very long time. This guy is toast even by Humboldt County Criminal Justice Standards.

    This guy is one very stupid crook. He blew off part of his face and then got arrested. He couldn't even kill himself with a gun and a speeding car.

    But afterall this is Humboldt County.

    Thank you PVG, Nancy, Barbara, Bonnie, and
