Coroner ID’s Shooting Victim, Suspect Arrested

The Shasta County Sheriff’s Major Crimes Unit is investigating the circumstances that led to the shooting death of a 37-year-old Redding man just south of city limits. The shooting was reported just after 6PM Friday evening by drivers on Clear Creek Road about a mile west of Highway 273. Both Redding Police and the Sheriff’s Office arrived at the scene because it’s right on the jurisdiction boundary. They found the body of Joseph Jehonathan Gill in a field north of the roadway. He had been shot multiple times. Witnesses pointed to 49-year-old Brady Evan Schumacher, and he was detained and eventually booked into jail for murder. A semi-auto handgun believed to be the murder weapon was recovered. Sheriff’s detectives say Gill and Schumacher knew each other, but no motive has been determined. Anyone with information is urged to call 245-6135 or e-mail
