EUREKA -- Sheriff's deputies in Northern California say a man and a 16-year-old girl are on the loose after shooting two transients, one fatally, with a crossbow.

Humboldt County Sheriff's Lt. Dave Morey says deputies responded to a report of an injured man on the side of a road in Eureka around 12:30 p.m. Sunday.

Deputies found the 41-year-old male victim suffering from three crossbow injuries. He was treated and released at a hospital.

The second victim, a 44-year-old man, was found dead nearby. He had suffered a single arrow shot to the face. Neither victim has been identified.

Morey identified the male suspect as 20-year-old Phoenix Triton King. The girl's identity was not released.

Morey says it appears King and the girl, also transients, suspected the two men had stolen from their transient camp.
