El Centro police investigators have reached a roadblock in the investigation into a shooting Friday in which one man was hit by a shotgun blast.
The victim, 34-year-old Jose Canez, and his family have been unwilling to provide police the information officers need for the case, according to El Centro police Lt. Tim Blankenship.
"When the victim and the family do not cooperate, they leave us little recourse," Blankenship said this morning.
The shooting occurred about 8:30 p.m. in the 400 block of Orange Avenue.
The victim was standing outside his El Centro home when two men walked toward him, one of them reportedly brandishing a shotgun.
At least one blast was fired and the victim was struck. He was taken to El Centro Regional Medical Center, where he was treated for his wounds.
