Mendota Police Department

A report of a shooting in Mendota appears to be untrue.

Back on Sunday officers and paramedics were called to a trailer for a man who claimed he had been shot in the face. Investigators say they found no evidence of gunfire but did see a victim who had been roughed up. Later in the day, 38-year-old Matthew McPheeters who lives at the trailer where the victim was found was arrested for battery. He has since posted bond and was given a court date.

Investigators say the case is still open.
