A man was shot Saturday night in Paso Robles, and police are looking for the gunman.

Around 11:15 p.m., officers responding to a report of gunfire at an apartment complex in the 3200 block of Spring Street found a man who had been shot in the torso, according to a news release from Paso Robles police.

The gunman was described as about 5 feet, 8 inches tall and 160 pounds, wearing dark clothes, and possibly a black or dark-colored hooded sweatshirt. He was last seen heading south from the 3100 block of Oak Street, police said.
