SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

Santa Barbara Police are heading up two separate investigations following a shooting and a stabbing this weekend.

Police are releasing few details surrounding the shooting.  But, investigators say officers responded to an incident on the  600 block of Wentworth at  12:24 a.m. on Sunday. A neighbor, who does not want to be identified, tells NewsChannel 3 he heard gunfire just after midnight. When officers arrived on scene, they found one person with a gunshot wound. The victim was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.  No one is in custody. 

The stabbing happened Saturday night around 8:30 p.m. on the 1200 block of Crestline Drive.  Police say a man stabbed a 61-year-old woman. The suspect and the victim knew each other, but their relationship is unclear. The suspect left the scene. Officers were able to contact him over the phone.  He surrendered near Elings Park. He's been identified as 20-year-old Samuel Maphis of Santa Barbara. He's been booked on attempted murder and terrorist threats.

Police say both investigations are ongoing.  Tune in to NewsChannel 3 at 6 tonight for a full report.
