MOHAVE COUNTY - A Kingman resident suffering a gunshot wound to the head was airlifted to Las Vegas following a shooting and car chase on Highway 93.
According to Mohave County Sheriff's Office Public Information Specialist Trish Carter, deputies responded to a call that two subjects allegedly fired shots at each other in a van near I-40 and Highway 93 Wednesday morning.
The van left the scene traveling south on Highway 93 with Department of Public Safety Officers pursuing the driver, CC H. Pulvermacher, 42, of Wikieup.
Timothy Craycraft, 18, of Kingman and Amy Elizabeth Wilson, 24, of Kingman ran to the north of milepost 70 into the desert.
The detectives and DPS, Yavapai County and the MCSO responded to the scene around 8:41 a.m. and set up a perimeter from the Petro Truck stop at milepost 66 to the Highway 93 and Interstate 40 interchange. During the search, Cedar Hills School was placed on lockdown for approximately two to three hours.
MCSO canine units assisted in the search until Craycraft and Wilson were located approximately a half a mile to the north of I-40 in the desert. Personnel on the DPS air rescue ranger out of Phoenix treated Craycraft for a gunshot wound to the head.
He was airlifted to the University Medical Center in Las Vegas, while Wilson was transported to the Sheriff's Office for an interview. Craycraft was listed in satisfactory condition Wednesday afternoon.
Officers from the Department of Public Safety conducted a traffic stop on the van on Highway 93 outside Wikieup. Pulvermacher suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the leg and was transported to Kingman Regional Medical Center.
An investigation is underway with possible charges coming, according to Carter.
