Police are investigating a series of weekend shootings into an inhabited dwelling in Paso Robles that may have been gang-related.
According to a news release, Paso Robles police went to the 1200 block of Corral Creek Avenue on Friday after several calls from residents hearing gunshots.
They found evidence that a small-caliber firearm had been shot toward an apartment that they believe was inhabited, though no victims have stepped forward. Witnesses also reported seeing a shadowy figure running from the area, as well as a group of people running from the apartment.
Police returned to the location at 2:45 a.m. Sunday, following similar phone calls from neighbors reporting gunshots. They once again recovered evidence that a small-caliber firearm had been used in the area.
The Paso Robles Police Department and the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Department Gang Task Force are investigating the events as a gang-involved incident. The department has also increased its patrol presence in the area.
