Police are searching for a man who allegedly fired gunshots toward an unidentified victim outside Tonita’s Mexican Grill in downtown San Luis Obispo.

On Feb. 16 at about 2:41 a.m, one person forced his way into the restaurant and started challenging an unknown victim to a fight, according to a news release. The suspect was later identified as Chase Calvin of Bakersfield and arrested for vandalism and possession of brass knuckles.

When the victim attempted to leave, Calvin followed him outside of the restaurant.

Then, an unidentified second person, who appeared to know Calvin, involved himself in the situation, according to the news release. The unknown person removed a firearm from his waistband and discharged the firearm towards the unknown victim.

Calvin and the unknown person fled the area towards Higuera, according to police.

Shortly after fleeing, two additional gunshots were heard by witnesses, police said.
