The UC Santa Cruz Police Department has been contacted by the Paso Robles Police Department regarding a homicide that occurred in that city late yesterday afternoon.

At this point, we've been asked to be on the look out for a vehicle belonging to one of the suspect's friends or associates. The vehicle is described as: a 1980s-90s Ford Ranger pickup truck, extended cab, black or dark color.

The suspect in the homicide — who may or may not be driving the vehicle — is described as an Hispanic male, approximately 40 years of age, five feet six inches tall, with dark hair. He may be accompanied by a white male and/or white female.

Chief Nader Oweis asks members of the UCSC community to call our Police Dispatch immediately (831-459-4858) if they see a vehicle meeting that description. 

Our department continues to work closely with the Paso Robles police and local law enforcement departments on this case.
