SANTA BARBARA (Calif.): Authorities in California say three people — including a suspect— are dead and seven others were wounded in drive-by shootings in the Santa Barbara area.
Santa Barbara County sheriff's spokeswoman Kelly Hoover tells KEYT-TV a second suspect was detained after the gunfire Friday night near the Isla Vista student enclave next to University of California-Santa Barbara's campus.
The circumstances were not immediately clear, but the station says police cordoned off four crime scenes, including one near a delicatessen and another near a convenience store.
The shooting prompted officials and the university to issue alerts urging people to stay indoors.
Isla Vista is known for parties, including one last month that turned into a violent blowout.
