Santa Barbara Police are investigating a fatal shooting that killed one man and left another wounded early New Years Day.

Around 3:30 a.m. Monday, police responded to a report of a disturbance at a residence in the 200 block of W. Victoria Street, cornering De La Vina Street.

Reports of gunshots and an assault with a deadly weapon were also reported. As police arrived they found one male victim who was deceased, laying in the street of the 1300 block of De La Vina, near W. Victoria Street. An injured man was found near the scene and was transported to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital via ground ambulance.

No arrests have been made and details on the men are not available at this time, but early reports state they appear to be in their 20's.

Another violent assault took place on Sunday where a woman was stabbed multiple times at Leadbetter Beach and taken to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, although these incidents do not appear to be related.

Edhat will update this article with more information as it becomes available.

Dear News Report People: He wasn't "laying in the street." "Lay" takes an object. (e.g., "He lay down the book.") http://www.writersdigest.com/online-editor/lay-vs-lie

You need to realize that with the new posting system here A 151 means nothing as to whom said what just as 420722 is not one person. Can't believe the number of people that still don't get this.

OOPS - I'm not the same poster who called them "gangbangers." However, even if I was, it still is irrelevant. There are gangs in every city in every state of this nation, "sanctuary" or not. Grow up please.

Most of the Santa Barbara transients are white and they haven’t even released the identity, nationality OR immigration status of the shooters yet so yes, a big oops on your part. Wtf?
