Fort Bragg Councilman Killed While Investigating Pot Operation

Northern California City Councilman was shot and killed while investigating a marijuana-growing operation

A Northern California city councilman was shot and killed while investigating a marijuana-growing operation, authorities said, and a SWAT team was scouring the remote woods for a suspect Sunday night. Jere Melo, a member of the Fort Bragg City Council since 1996, was shot and killed on Saturday in a rugged area near the Noyo River, according to the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office. Fort Bragg Mayor Dave Turner said the small city was in shock and said Melo’s service would resonate for years to come. “Jere is probably the hardest-working councilman ever,” Turner said. “He’s a guy that gets along with everybody. He brought civility to the council.” Melo and his wife, Madeleine, had two children, Turner said. For a portion of Melo’s time on the council, he served as mayor.
