SEACLIFF — A man suffered multiple gunshot wounds at a Seacliff residence early Thursday morning after a resident opened fire.

Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s officials were releasing few details about why the man was at the residence on the 500 block of Cedar Street, and what led to the shooting. Sheriff’s Sgt. Dee Baldwin said he was an “uninvited guest” not associated with the home.

Neighbor Janice Diciuccio, whose window faces the residence, said that she heard a woman shouting “no” and “get out” at about 3 a.m., followed by several popping sounds.

Diciuccio called 911, and then stayed inside.

“I locked myself in my bedroom,” she said.

Diciuccio said that two sisters live in the residence, but that only one of them was at home during the incident.

Neighbor Tibor Schoenfeld said he was surprised to hear about the shooting in the neighborhood, which he described as normally peaceful.

“It’s a really quiet neighborhood, lots of kids running around and biking,” he said. “Not a lot going on.”
