Orland High School "beef" turns to attempted homicide


    Two Orland teens were arrested on Halloween after they allegedly tried to run over four other teens in a Ford Ranger, according to the Orland Police Department.

    Orland police were dispatched to Orland High School on Halloween in response to reports of a student getting hit by a vehicle off campus.

    Officers investigated the situation and learned that two students who had "ongoing beef" had agreed to meet in the area of Trinity Street and Seventh Street to fight during their school lunch.

    In the press release provided by the Orland Police Department, they refer to the involved parties as Suspect one, Suspect two, Victim one and Victim two to protect the identities of the juveniles involved.

    During their school lunch, Suspect one and Victim one were involved in a physical altercation, during which Suspect one told Suspect two to escalate the fight. Suspect two pulled out a weapon of some kind and started chasing after Victim one, attempting to stab him.

    According to Orland police, Suspects one and two got into a black Ford Ranger and tried running over Victim one and his three friends. At this time, Victim one ran to a nearby store to protect himself.

    When Victim one and his friends decided it was safe to walk back to the high school, they began walking eastbound on Monterey Street and Victim one spotted the Ford Ranger again as they were crossing the railroad tracks.

    The Ford Ranger was traveling westbound on Monterey Street at a high speed and then crossed over the eastbound lane, up onto the sidewalk where it hit Victim two. Victim two suffered a minor injury to his left leg that did not require medical attention at the time.

    Suspects one and two were located later at a home in the 6400 block of County Road 12 and were arrested for attempted homicide, assault with a deadly weapon, criminal threats, felony hit and run, conspiracy to commit a felony and intimidation of a witness.

    Suspects one and two were turned over to the probation department for booking and the black Ford Ranger was impounded as evidence.

    Anyone who may have seen the incident in question is asked to call Officer Carmon with the Orland Police Department at (530) 865-1616.
