On Tuesday, May 27, 2014, at approximately 2:30 pm, Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Deputies responded to an apartment in the 6500 block of Pardall Road for a gunshot that had come through the reporting party's apartment wall. Deputies arrived and found that a bullet had been shot through the wall from a connecting apartment, deflected off of a TV stand and lodged into the adjacent wall, narrowly missing the resident inside. Deputies went to the suspect's apartment and contacted the lone resident, identified as 21-year old Kevin Tym (UCSB student). When questioned, Tym admitted that he was playing with his legally owned handgun and accidentally fired a Glock 17, 9mm round through his neighbor's wall. During a search incident to arrest, Tym was found in possession of 7 firearms and approximately 1000 rounds of ammunition. In addition, he was found in possession of high capacity assault rifle magazines. All of the firearms were legally owned by Tym.

All of Tym's firearms, ammunition and magazines were seized. Tym was arrested and booked into jail for a violation of 246.3 PC - Negligent discharge of a firearm and 32310(a) PC - Possession of high capacity magazines. His bail was set at $2,500.

A booking photo of the suspect is not being released.
