One person was injured in what police say is believed to be a gang-related shooting in Lompoc Saturday night.

It was the second shooting reported in the city that day.

Police say several calls came in shortly before 10 p.m. reporting shots fired along the 600 block of N. H Street near Alfie’s Fish & Chips and Carl’s Jr.

Officers several blocks away reported also hearing the shots. They responded immediately but say they were unable to find anyone associated with the shooting; however, approximately five minutes later, police say a man, whose condition is described now as “stable,” arrived at Lompoc Valley Medical Center with a single gunshot wound.

Police say it was not a vehicle-to-vehicle shooting, but they are not elaborating at this time on the specifics of what they believe took place.

Earlier in the day, police say a vehicle was damaged after being shot at shortly before noon near the intersection of E Chestnut Avenue and N D St. No injuries were reported.

That shooting is being investigated as "malicious and willful discharge of a firearm at an occupied motor vehicle," according to police.

As of early Sunday morning, police said they have no suspects and no arrests have been made in either shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to call Lompoc police at (805) 736-2341.
