Shortly after midnight, witnesses reported shots being fired at the south end of the dunes. Emergency responders transported six people injured during the shooting to local hospitals.

The names and conditions of the victims is not available at this time.

The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office took over the investigation from California State Parks and is interviewing witnesses and collecting evidence, according to officials.

Investigators are asking anyone with information about the shooting to contact the sheriff’s office at (805) 781-4550.


Drug deals gone bad being blamed on the dunes … Hauling dope in travel trailers oldest trick in the books… If pulled over police need search warrant to search trailer


Oceano and its dunes are cursed.

Certainly our misuse of the Dunes is cursed. The artists who once inhabited that feature were quite happy and productive. Not to mention the Indigenous People who enjoyed lives there. But using such a beautiful part of nature to glorify reckless driving, alcohol abuse and firearms, etc., is asking for trouble and preventing better use of an area with much healthier potential. We reap what we sow.



Yet another shooting? Let’s confiscate all guns, and, to end obesity, let’s seize all spoons.



You misread “shooting” for “spooning”.

But sure, Emerica has a mass spooning issue as well.


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 the Oakland resident has an attorney


At least this guy ID’d his targets, unlike the redneck cresting the dune with his ATV not knowing or caring what’s on the other side. A refreshing change from the usual weekend casualties and less of a threat to passersby.


KSBY is reporting: According to the San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s Office, Francisco Orozco, 19, was arrested and will face charges of attempted murder. Orozco is from Oakland, authorities say.

I wonder how many firearms laws this guy broke? And I wonder if he will be prosecuted for breaking them?


According to SLO County Sheriff’s web site the Sheriff’s Office believes this is an isolated incident. Web site says nothing of searching for a shooter.


wasn’t the alcohol was it?


Pretty sure it was the gun dude.

Alcohol may have helped, but c’mon.

From my experience; unarmed drunks are fairly easy do deal with.


Nah, just another peaceful chinco de madre celebration. The POS wasn’t “respected” like he thought he should be coming from Oakland and all.
