The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Department is investigating a homicide in California Valley.
A sheriff's department spokesperson says deputies responded to a report of a shooting in the area of Cucamonga Trail and Dorris Road just before 8:00 p.m. Sunday. When they arrived, they found Joseph Cochran, 49, dead from a single gunshot wound.
Investigators say Cochran and the suspect, 55-year-old Gina Loret Mayborn, had gotten into a dispute at Cochran's trailer. He and Mayborn lived near each other.
Firefighters and paramedics in the area attempted to save Cochran but they were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Mayborn is being held at the San Luis Obispo County Jail on a charge of homicide.
