From the SANTA CRUZ COUNTY Sheriff:
Early Thursday morning at about 5:45 am, the Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a victim of a gunshot wound. We learned that during an argument, 28 year old Austin Combs was reported to have shot another man in the face with a handgun. The victim sustained serious but non-life threatening injuries. Combs fled the scene prior to the arrival of our Deputies. We are asking anyone with information related to Combs whereabouts to contact Dispatch at 831-471-1121, to speak to a Deputy. Please reference Sheriff’s Office case 17-06013. The weapon in this case is still outstanding and we caution the public not to personally contact Combs. There is currently a warrant for Combs arrest for attempted murder.
