On 1-8-2010 at about 2039 hours, Officers were dispatched to the 200 block
of Humboldt Street to a reported shots fired call. It was reported to the
Eureka Police Dispatch center that three (3) shots had been heard, followed
by a large amount of yelling.

Upon arrival Officers located a single male subject down in the roadway and
several subjects physically fighting. The down subject was unresponsive and
bleeding. A Eureka Police Officer administered life saving efforts, until
medical personnel arrived. However, the subject succumbed to his wounds
and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The scene was quickly secured, with the assistance of Deputies of the
Humboldt County Sheriff's Department, and several subjects were detained and
interviewed. Eureka Police Detectives and forensic processing personnel
soon responded to the scene to investigate. Due to the large crime scene
and vast amount of interviews to be conducted, a mutual aid request was
made to the Humboldt County District Attorney's Office and their
personnel assisted in the investigation.

Through the investigation it was determined that an argument took place
between the deceased and a male subject at a nearby apartment. The argument
became heated and shots were fired. The victim was struck while attempting
to flee the scene. The suspect and a female companion fled the scene.

The suspect was identified as Tellest Antwion Keyes (28 years old of
Eureka). The female companion was identified as Jessica Diane Montel (21
years old of Eureka). Currently Keyes is sought by Law Enforcement for
Murder and Montel is being sought for being a accessory after the fact.
Keyes and Montel are possibly in possession of two young children and may be
driving a Grey 1986 Lincoln Towncar, bearing California License Plate

Anyone with information concerning Keyes or Montel's whereabouts is urged to
contact the Eureka Police Department at 707-441-4044. The public is also
requested not to contact or attempt to detain Keyes or Montel. They are to
be considered armed and dangerous.

This is an ongoing investigation and further details will be released as
they become available.
