A 39-year-old Lompoc man was identified as the victim of Saturday's shooting in the 600 block of North Fourth Street, according to a Lompoc Police spokesman. 

Lompoc Police Sgt. Agustin Arias on Wednesday identified Bobby Contreras as the man found deceased inside of a residence on Saturday.

Police responded to the call of a person not breathing inside a home in the 600 block of North Fourth Street shortly after 3 p.m. Saturday, Arias said, adding that the call came from a family member. 

Initially, Lompoc Police reported that Contreras had died from stab wounds but later attributed the death to a shooting.  

A suspect has not been identified, according to Arias. 

Officials would not disclose whether the shooting was gang-related but are continuing to investigate. 

Anyone with information about the shooting or who is in possession of surveillance video is asked to share it with police by calling 805-736-2341, ext. 8121. Information can be left anonymously.
