Man shot on Woodside recovering

Staff reports

A Carson City man is recovering after being shot in the arm early Sunday morning on Woodside Drive.

Carson City Sheriff’s Detective Daniel Gonzales said Jesus Ledezma-Garcia, 23, suffered a “through and through” gunshot wound to the left arm just after midnight.

Several people called 911 after hearing from four to 10 gunshots in the parking lot of a highly populated apartment complex in the 1100 block of Woodside Drive.

Initially patrol officers were unable to locate anything until they found Ledezma-Garcia crouching behind a truck nearby where they eventually discovered a blood trail.

Gonzales said the victim explained he was visiting a friend in the complex when he went outside for “fresh air,” and was shot by a stranger he didn’t see.

Witnesses have offered investigators conflicting statements, Gonzales said, including the description of a white, lowered S10 pickup seen speeding away from the area immediately following the shooting.

Gonzales said anyone with information on the shooting should call him at 887-2020, ext. 1410.
