SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP/KTVU) - Authorities arrested a 19-year-old Oakland man in connection with a shooting that injured six people at the Oceano Dunes Natural Preserve on California's central coast, which witnesses said began over a domestic dispute.
Francisco Orozco, 19, could face multiple counts of attempted murder, the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office said Sunday. It wasn't immediately known if he has an attorney.
Witnesses said that a woman was hit on the beach and several people started to jump the man who hit her, and then a fight between two groups broke out.
"The person who hit the girl got jumped," Efrain Escobar said.
"It was scary," added Armando Alvarez. "People were just falling."
Six people were hospitalized following the shooting, authorities said.
The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office says investigators believe the shooting just after midnight on Saturday was an isolated incident and there is no threat to the public.
The conditions of those hurt weren't immediately available.
