No arrests have been made in a shooting Sunday night on Santa Barbara’s Eastside that left one man hospitalized with serious injuries, according to the Santa Barbara Police Department.

The shooting occurred at about 7:20 p.m. in the 1100 block of Bregante Lane, according to Sgt. Kenneth Kushner.

Officers who responded to multiple reports of gunshots in the area found a 39-year-old Santa Barbara man lying in the street with a single gunshot wound to the abdomen, Sgt. Riley Harwood said Monday morning.

The victim, whose name was not released, was taken to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, where he was being treated.

The victim suffered serious injures, but was expected to survive, according to Lt. Paul McCaffrey.

Investigators remained on Monday, Harwood said, adding that the shooting is not believed to be gang-related.

Boy I thought the illegals and their millions of anchor babaies would be be leaning english and adjusting to a our culture. Instead their kids are dirty little gang members that need to be eliminated—Hang em high!!!

Thanks Democrats you have turned California from a hard working state, to the most lazy state in the nation because of welfare food stamps 99ers free obama cell phones free lunches medical and section 8.


Too many takers on the dole, and the makers are leaving quickly. The scun will stay and muliply like roaches in Calif. The families that remain should be worried about the millions of angry losers who parents have taught them how to work the Democrats 50 year old failed welfare system.>>((FOR VOTES))Instead of working hard to get ahead, God forbid we take their free money away—RIOTS!!!

trala watch this case.  It will be gang related, the police want to downplay things if you hadn’t figured that out yet.

you need to find out the real reason why this happens! Why are they in gangs? You don’t hear much about the white race because they are out on drugs… you should not point the finger; if you have not noticed the whole nation is in crisis…do your home work.
