Man Shoots at Neighbor Because He Did Not Give Him Milk & Eggs

LUCERNE VALLEY, Ca. – A Lucerne Valley man shot at his neighbor several times after he did not have milk and eggs to offer him earlier this week.

On Thursday, August 13, 2020, at around 10:00 a.m. a man called walking into the sheriff’s station in Lucerne Valley to report an attempted murder. He told authorities that he was sleeping in his home in the 700 Block of Clay Way in Lucerne Valley when his neighbor came to the door. When the man answered, Mitchell Clay, 56, asked for milk and eggs. The victim told him that he did not have any.  Clay became upset and told the victim he had five minutes to leave because he was going to return to kill him. 

Clay went into his home and returned with the two firearms. He shot several shots toward his home as the victim got into his vehicle. While in the vehicle, Clay fired toward his vehicle. The victim went to the sheriff station to report the incident. The victim was not injured as a result of the shooting.

A search warrant and arrest warrant were obtained. With the assistance of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Departments Specialized Enforcement Division (SED), Mitchell Clay was arrested at his residence without incident. He is currently being held in lieu of $1,000,000.00 bail.
