A juvenile was reported to be in critical condition after a shooting Sunday night in Santa Maria.
Shortly before 7:30 p.m., officers responded to multiple calls of a shooting on the 400 block of East Orange Street, according to Sgt. Andy Magallon of the Santa Maria Police Department.
“Upon arrival, officers located evidence of a shooting, but no victims were immediately located on scene,” Magallon said.
