On Monday, January 10th at about 7:04 pm, the Santa Maria Police Department received calls to our dispatch center regarding shots being fired in a parking lot, in the 1800 block of N. Broadway.  Upon officers’ arrival, they located several witnesses who provided information on the shooting and located evidence confirming that a shooting occurred.  Officers did not locate a victim or a suspect at the time. 

While Officers were investigating the reported shooting in the 1800 block of N. Broadway, another call for service came into our dispatch center about a shooting victim located in the 1000 block of S. Russell.  Officers arrived on scene shortly after and located an 18 year old Hispanic male suffering from several gunshot wounds. 

As the investigation continued, information was gathered which led officers to believe the gunshot victim was related to the shooting investigation in the 1800 block of N. Broadway. 

The victim of the shooting was transported to Marian Medical Center and eventually flown to Cottage Hospital for treatment.  The victim’s status is currently unknown.

The Santa Maria Police Department Detective Bureau responded to both scenes and are investigating the shooting. The Santa Maria Police Department Detective Bureau is asking that any witnesses to the shooting contact them at 805-928-3781, extension 2277.
