Gunshots Heard At Apartment Residences

The Paso Robles Police Department responded to two shooting events over the weekend. On Friday, August 16th, 2013, at approximately 11:30pm the PRPD responded to the 1200 block of Corral Creek Avenue after receiving numerous phone calls from residents who reported hearing gunshots. The second event happened on Sunday, August 18th, 2013 at approximately 2:45am at the same location. There were no injuries reported as a result of either incident and no suspects have been identified.
 
After the August 16th shooting, investigators found evidence that a small caliber firearm had been shot toward an apartment they believe might have been occupied at the time. However, officers have been unable to locate a victim or a suspect associated with the shooting. Several neighbors reported hearing 4 to 5 gunshots around 11:30pm and saw a shadowy figure running from the area directly after the event. Neighbors also reported seeing several people run from an apartment they believe might have been the intended target.
 
At approximately 2:45am, on August 18th, PRPD officers returned to the apartment complex after neighbors again called and reported hearing gun fire. Officers recovered evidence that a small caliber firearm had been fired in the area. Again, officers were unable to locate a victim or a suspect.
 
The PRPD’s Special Enforcement Team is investigating the shootings in conjunction with the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Department Gang Task Force. The investigation is being treated as a gang involved incident.
