Teen victim, suspect among three injured in Watsonville shooting


Three people, including a suspect, were taken to a hospital following a shooting in Watsonville Monday evening, according to police.

A teenage girl was the youngest victim in the shooting reported just after 7 p.m. in the 600 block of Rodriguez Street. Officers arrived on the scene to find the girl, a man in his 40s and the suspect — whose name hasn’t been released — all suffering from gunshot wounds.

Police said the victims and suspect all suffered wounds not considered life-threatening. The suspect is believed to be the only person who was in possession of a firearm.

The shooting is believed to have stemmed from a dispute between neighbors on the second floor of an apartment building.

The suspect will be booked into Santa Cruz County Jail once he is released from the hospital.
