Two people were arrested after authorities say they tried to kill a man Tuesday night outside Colusa Casino.

Colusa County Sheriff’s Office detectives responded to the casino about 8:50 p.m. after reports of an adult male who had suffered a gunshot wound, according to a Colusa County Sheriff’s Office news release.

The man had been shot on the south end of the property before driving north to the casino itself, where he called 911. He was taken to Rideout Memorial Hospital in Marysville and was in stable condition as of Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators obtained a description of the shooter and his truck, then a California Highway Patrol helicopter tracked down a matching vehicle at a residence northwest of the casino. Special Operations and Response Team members chased Ysidro Chico Arismendez, 33, on foot before arresting him on suspicion of attempted murder, robbery, possession of a firearm by a felon, assault with a firearm, criminal conspiracy and possession of a controlled substance.

Shantrice Moon-Gomez, 20, was also found inside the residence and arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, robbery, fear as an element in robbery, assault with a firearm and criminal conspiracy.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact Colusa County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Jose Ruiz at 530-458-0200.

In a separate incident Tuesday night, Oroville resident Wade Burnside, 26, was arrested after Yuba City police said he texted a friend his plans to shoot up an unknown casino before killing himself that night.

Burnside was booked into Butte County jail on suspicion of terrorist threats, possession of methamphetamine, possession of ammunition by a felon and probation violation and was being held on $500,000 bail Wednesday.
