The paper went on to say that witnesses say two men were robbing a residence on the street and one of the residents fought back, subduing one of the robbers.
Around 9:15 p.m., the Daily Nexus reported that the lock-down had been lifted and one of the suspects was at a nearby hospital.
This shooting was in the Isla Vista area, the same area where Elliot Rodger killed six people and hurt 14 others before killing himself on May 23, 2014.
