An unknown suspect shot the victim around 8 p.m. Thursday in the 400 block of Buena Vista Avenue. Emergency personnel transported the victim to Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center, where he underwent surgery.

San Luis Obispo police have yet to identify a suspect or victim in the case.

A neighbor, Gary Steinmann, said he witnessed two males speaking on the sidewalk in the area of the shooting just prior to the incident. Steinmann also said that he saw a white car parked with its lights on for several minutes before the shooting.

The home where the shooting occurred is typically rented to college students, Steinmann told the Tribune.
