Rocklin police are searching for a reportedly armed and dangerous man in connection to a shooting at a city intersection earlier this week. Lieutenant Terry Roide announced Wednesday evening that officers are looking for David Ray Friedman, a 24-year-old Rio Linda resident, as an additional suspect in a shooting incident that injured one. At 1:57 a.m. Sunday, police received a report of a shooting at the intersection of Sunset and Blue Oaks boulevards in Rocklin. The victim drove himself to Sutter Roseville Medical Center and was treated for a gunshot wound to the neck, according to Roide. Police later arrested 28-year-old Jamie Payton of Weimar and charged her with attempted murder and possession of a controlled substance. On Tuesday, police arrested Ryan Michael Norris, 30, of Diamond Springs and charged him with attempted murder and robbery, according to Roide. Norris was also a parolee at large, wanted by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Roide added. Norris’ arrest came after several law enforcement agencies joined together to serve a search warrant related to the shooting on Cherrelyn Way and Dry Creek Road in Sacramento County. Norris was arrested after a short stand off on Cherrelyn Way. The agencies involved include the Placer County Sheriff’s Office, the Placer County Special Investigations Unit, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department Special Enforcement Detail and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Friedman is described as a white male, 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighing 109 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. Friedman, a parolee at large, is wanted for attempted murder and robbery. He is considered armed and dangerous, Roide said. Anybody with information concerning his location is encouraged to contact the Rocklin Police Department Dispatch Center immediately at (916) 625-5400. ~ Staff report
