UPDATE (6:50 p.m.):

Paso Robles Police investigates an attempted murder at a home that left a 29-year-old male with a gunshot wound in his head. The victim faces "serious, but not life-threatening injuries."

According to detectives, there was a 911 call from a residence located at the 1000 block of Dorothy Street. The caller said a person in her home had been shot by a male that fled the scene.

Authorities identified and arrested 20-year-old Carlos Luis Chavez from Paso Robles, who is now booked at the San Luis Obispo County Jail.

Chavez faces “felony charges of attempted murder and felon in possession of a handgun,” as shared by the Paso Robles Police Department.


UPDATE (3:45 p.m.): The Paso Robles Police Department responded to a shooting around 12:55 P.M. at Dorothy Ct in Paso Robles. Upon arrival, units found one victim with a gunshot wound, who was transported Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center.

“Preliminarily it looks like that wound was superficial,” said Paso Robles Police Commander Tod Rehner. “They are in stable condition with a non-threatening wound.”

Paso Robles Police and the San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s Office arrested the suspect, who was booked in San Miguel.

According to Commander Rehner, around 10-12 deputies are working on this case, which does not seem to be a domestic dispute. However, the victim and suspect knew each other.

“They are familiar with this residence, both parties involved, we need to look further,” added Commander Rehner.

There is no active shelter in place order, but deputies did ask families watching children play soccer in surrounding schools to evacuate the area as a safety precaution.

The incident is under investigation.
