Man Injured in Possible Drive-By Shooting in Santa Maria

Santa Maria police are investigating a possible drive-by shooting early Thursday that left one man injured.

Officers responded to Marian Regional Medical Center shortly after midnight to talk with the victim, who arrived there by private vehicle, according to Sgt. Jack Dunn.

He said the victim provided little information, but did tell police that he was walking home in the 600 block of West Cypress Street when a white, four-door Acura pulled up to him and the front passenger fired one shot from a gun, striking his upper torso. There is no suspect description.

Dunn said the gunshot wound was not believed to be life-threatening.

The investigation is continuing. Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Police Department at 805.928.3781 x495.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
