At least one shot in East Bakersfield


At least one man was shot Sunday morning, according to police.

Investigators blocked off Cottonwood Road between Watts Drive and Casino Street just between 11 a.m. The area is believed to be where a man was shot before arriving at Kern Medical.

The man is “expected to survive,” according to Bakersfield Police Sgt. Nicole Shihrer.

Shihrer also indicated another law enforcement agency was investigating two other shootings that occurred around the same time, but said it was unclear if the shootings were related. BPD did not provide information on the additional shootings.

A call to the Kern County Sheriff’s Office regarding these shootings was not returned as of publication.
