The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office and the California Highway Patrol are investigating an officer involved shooting that happened Wednesday night in Santa Barbara County.

It happened around 8:00 p.m. in the area of Patterson Avenue and Agana Drive.

The CHP issued a "Be on the Lookout" for a wrong-way driver near Patterson Avenue and Calle Real. That's in the unincorporated area of Santa Barbara County.
