MT. SHASTA, Calif. — The Mount Shasta Police Department is on the lookout for a man wanted for attempted murder following a stabbing on Saturday.

The agency said that officers responded to the 200-block of Sheldon Avenue on Saturday following reports of a stabbing. They soon found 36-year-old Jaime Miller bleeding from a stab wound to the chest.

Miller told investigators that he'd been threatened by 48-year-old Michael Lee Wilson the day before. According to Miller, Wilson had said that he was "going to get him."

The next day, Miller said that Wilson came by his house shortly after 10:30 — challenging him to a fight. Miller followed Wilson outside, where they fought.

"Miller went outside and after the two started fighting, Wilson produced a knife and stabbed Miller in the chest area," Mt. Shasta Police said.

Emergency crews brought Miller to Mercy Medical Center, but he was later released following treatment.

"The department is seeking the public’s assistance in locating Wilson, who is wanted for attempted murder and should be considered armed and dangerous," police said.

Wilson is described as 5'10" and 215 pounds. Anyone who sees him should not approach, but report the sighting to local law enforcement or call Mt. Shasta Police at (530) 926-7540.
