The Santa Barbara Independent Man Shot in Head
Police are still unclear what prompted the shooting but, according to witnesses, the victim — a Hispanic male in his 20s — met the alleged shooter and two accomplices at the front door of the home at 1535 Gillespie Street, and was shot one time in the middle of the forehead. While Sgt. Mike McGrew said witnesses inside the home heard an exchange, “the story is still vague right now” as to what was said between the victim and alleged shooter. McGrew said he didn’t know if the door was opened by the victim or the suspects, but that the shooting happened inside the residence near the doorway.
