On November 29, 2011 at around 1 a.m., Frazier Park deputies responded to a report of shots fired in the 2500 block of Bird Street in Lebec, CA. A victim reported her husband, Samuel Johnson, fired a shot at her from a handgun as she was leaving their residence. The couple had been involved in an argument prior to her leaving. Frazier Park and Lamont Substation deputies, along with assistance from the California Highway Patrol, responded to the Johnson residence to arrest Samuel Johnson for assault with a deadly weapon (firearm).
