Fight in Shell Beach leads to intensive care, attempted murder charges

A 30-year-old man suffered severe head trauma and another man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a fight outside Alex’s Bar-B-Q in Shell Beach late Tuesday.

When officers arrived at nearby Boeker Street, they found bystanders administering CPR to 30-year-old Gregory Mascorro of Shell Beach. Officers continued CPR on Mascorro, who was bleeding from a head wound, until medics arrived.

According to police, Mascorro and Jeremy Hollis, 33, argued inside the bar, which led to a physical fight outside on Boeker Street. Hollis allegedly inflicted life-threatening injuries to Mascorro.

Mascorro was taken to Arroyo Grande Community Hospital in critical condition and was transferrred to the intensive care unit at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center. Hollis was taken to County Jail.

The investigation continues.
