Police seeking suspects in attack on 39-year-old Santa Barbara man, who is expected to survive

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.

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.
