Update - Dale White was located safe in Fresno, and returned to his family. Thank you to everyone who assisted!
Officers are looking for 57 year-old Dale White. White walked away from his home in the 900 block of Russell Ave, near Barstow/Sunnyside in Clovis today at about 2:45PM. White is considered "at-risk" because of medical conditions. White is known to frequent the Old Town Clovis area. He is described as a white male adult, 6'1, 180 lbs, with grey hair and a grey beard. When he walked away from home, he was wearing either an orange shirt or tie dye colored shirt, with black jogging pants. White also has sleeve tattoos that include skulls and cob webs.
At approximately 10:00 PM on 3/24/17, Clovis Police received a 911 call regarding possible shots fired with an injured person in the front yard of a residence on Acacia near First St. Officers arrived within two minutes, contacted the victim, and determined the suspect was still inside of the home. After officers arrived on scene, an additional shot was fired from the suspect. The injured male was turned over to EMS and was treated for a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to his hand. Officers contained the situation until SWAT arrived. After several announcements by our SWAT team and Negotiators, the suspect exited the home and was detained without further incident.
