Hoopa clerk pulls gun, shoots alleged robber

A man authorities said attempted to rob a Hoopa convenience store is recovering at a hospital after he was shot by the clerk of the store he was attempting to rob.

The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Department said David Lee Moon, 19, of Hoopa, walked into the store off State Route 96 around 7:45 p.m. Thursday, brandished a handgun at the clerk and demanded money.

The clerk, who was not named, then took out his own firearm and shot Moon.

Moon ran from the store and was found 100 yards away, in a trailer park. He was taken to a Eureka hospital by ambulance.

The Sheriff’s Department said Moon is in stable condition in the hospital.
