Carlsbad police investigating shooting at popular resort
Carlsbad-Police say a 22-year-old man was shot and injured after a party in the Carlsbad resort on Tuesday.
Despite the shooting incident early on Sunday morning, it was still a picturesque day at the MarBrisa Carlsbad resort.
“Wow, I was very surprised,” said Sebastian Mathews, a Carlsbad resident. “This is a quiet area. I’m surprised this will happen here.”
The police said they received a call requesting to shoot at a party in the resort. At 2 am, the police found a 22-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound.
Mathews said: “It’s totally unexpected that this happens so close, in a resort and an area like Carlsbad, you think it’s a safe area.”
According to the police, the victim was taken to the hospital and is currently in stable condition.
The officers said that after the shooting, they also arrested 19-year-old Bernardo Vazquez on charges not related to guns.
Matthews said: “I’m really happy that the police are here and sorted out this.” “I hope they know if this person is the perpetrator, but gun violence has problems, so as a country, this is what we need. Things to deal with.”
FOX 5 contacted the staff of MarBrisa Resort to comment, but has not yet received a response.
