One person received a non-life-threatening injury in a shooting overnight in Guadalupe.
Just after midnight Wednesday, personnel from the Guadalupe Fire Department, American Medical Response and the Guadalupe Police Department were dispatched to a possible shooting on the 900 block of Escalante Street.
At the scene, crews found a male with a gunshot wound.
Police Chief Michael Cash said the victim, who received a shotgun birdshot wound to his upper arm, told police that the subject had exited a dark-colored Dodge Charger, approached him and asked, “Where are you frrom?”
The suspect then pulled out a shotgun and fired a birdshot round at close range, hitting the victim in the shoulder with the wad casing leaving a bloody mark, Cash added.
Several rounds from a 9mm weapon also were fired but police did not receive any reports of additional victims or property damage, Cash said.
The patient, whose age was not immediately available, was taken to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital by CalStar medical helicopter for treatment.
Investigators were working to identify the suspect who shot the victim, Cash said late Wednesday morning.
Anyone with information about the shooting can call the Guadalupe police at 805.356.3888.
