LIVE OAK, Calif. -- Santa Cruz County sheriff's deputies spent hours processing three separate crime scenes connected with a homicide early Thursday, shutting down a busy roadway and re-directing traffic during the morning commute.
According to Lt. Craig Wilson, a shooting victim knocked on a door of the Emerald Bay Apartments at about 2:30 a.m. Thursday. Wilson said the victim, identified as Nathan Connally, 19, was shot near Dover Drive and stumbled across the street to the apartment building. Despite life-saving efforts, Connally died at the scene.
The Santa Cruz man reportedly had some troubles with the law.
