San Luis Obispo police are investigating how a 27-year-old local man who was shot in the buttocks ended up being dropped off at a local hospital’s ambulance bay Monday afternoon.
The man was dropped off at 12:45 p.m. at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center in San Luis Obispo with what appeared to be a wound from a small-caliber gun, police said.
Two men in a mid-1990s bright red two-door hatchback similar to a Honda Civic left the man there, according to police.
The car has a bullet hole in the rear of the vehicle and undisclosed “evidence in the back seat,” according to radio dispatches Monday to San Luis Obispo County law enforcement agencies.

Authorities have not disclosed the gunshot victim’s name.
Investigators are looking for the car and its driver, who they say is a person of interest and possible witness but not a suspect.
Police described the driver as a heavyset Hispanic man about 5 feet 7 inches tall, wearing a dark T-shirt and a baseball hat with its bill pulled up.
The passenger was described as a Hispanic man about 5 feet 4 inches tall, weighing 250 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.
