Two people were arrested Thursday in connection with a shooting that sent a man to the hospital, according to the Lompoc Police Department.
Shortly before noon, police dispatchers received several reports of multiple gunshots on the 600 block of North Fourth Street, Sgt. Vincent Magallon said.
“When officers arrived, they located a 36-year-old male with a non-life-threatening injury,” Magallon said. “The male victim was transported to the hospital for medical attention.”
His name and details on his condition were not available.
Detectives learned that a vehicle was connected with the shooting, Magallon said, and made a traffic stop with the assistance of patrol officers.
Three people were inside the vehicle, and a search turned up three firearms, including a non-serialized handgun — commonly referred to as a “ghost gun” — and a sawed-off shotgun, Magallon said.
Andrew Simons Armstead, 29, was arrested on suspicion of being a felon in possession of firearms as well as possession of a short-barreled rifle, Magallon said. Celena Garcia, 36, was taken into custody for outstanding warrants.
Jordan Canely, 26, was cited for driving a motor vehicle without a license, Magallon added.
The shooting remained under investigation, and anyone who has information about it is asked to call the Police Department at 805.736.2341.
