Saturday’s incident was the second shooting reported in two days in Paso Robles.
About 3:30 p.m. Friday, police said a man standing in the parking lot of J N J’s Liquor on Spring Street fired several shots into the air using a rifle or shotgun.
That shooter then left in a white car, similar to a Ford Contour; the vehicle was driven by someone else, according to police.
Based on surveillance video footage that showed the white car and bullet holes found in the liquor store’s wall, investigators believe a different person may have shot at the car in the parking lot, according to the a Police Department news release.
