SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -

San Luis Obispo Police officers are investigating after a Cal Poly student football coach was was shot during what they believe was a drug deal. The incident happened inside a home Thursday at 7:45 p.m. on the 400 block of Buena Vista Ave.

The shooting victim is identified as 22-year-old Geoffrey Hyde who was shot in the back.  He was taken to the hospital and is in stable condition.  Hyde was listed as a student football coach and offensive lineman football player on the Cal Poly website.

San Luis Obispo Police investigators were called in to investigate this crime and secured a search warrant for the residence.

During the course of this investigation it was discovered two suspects entered the residence possibly to complete a drug transaction involving prescription medication.

Police said one suspects is described as a male black in his 20’s, approximately 6’0” tall with a lanky build, wearing a gray “South Pole” sweatshirt and jeans.

The other suspect is described as a male Hispanic in his 20’s, 5’6” tall with a “chubby build” and short hair. He was wearing a gray sweatshirt and jeans.

Investigators believe that Hyde and one of the suspects became involved in a physical altercation which lead to Hyde being shot in the back.

Immediately after the shooting both suspects ran out of the residence and fled in an unknown direction. It is believed they fled in a vehicle but we have not confirmed a description of the vehicle.

Neither of the suspects involved in this case have been positively identified. This case remains under investigation and investigators are continuing to follow up on potential leads.

Anyone with information regarding this matter is asked to notify the San Luis Obispo Police Department or Crime Stoppers.

    DUI Driver in Fatal Early Morning Accident Ordered to Detox Program in 1995

    The Santa Barbara woman arrested for DUI in the early morning accident that left three people dead early Monday morning has a lengthy court record out of Ventura County. Kimberly Kreis, 52, was ordered to serve 30 days in a detox program as far back as 1995.

    The car that Kreis was driving crashed into a disabled Mazda near the Castillo off-ramp of the southbound 101 freeway in Santa Barbara. Two 17 year old North Torrance High School students were killed in the accident- Jessica Leffew and Danielle Murillo. 20 year old Brian Lopez also died in the wreck. The driver of the Mazda, Eric August, is hospitalized in critical condition.

    A NewsChannel 3 investigation found records out of Ventrua County that appear to show that Greis has at least one prior conviction involving drugs and or alcohol, and in 1995 she was ordered to serve 30 days in a Cottage Hospital detox program.

    CHP investigators are still trying to piece together why the Mazda veered right into a guardrail, causing it to flip onto it's roof before coming to rest in the middle of the southbound freeway, which set into motion the deadly accident.

    CHP Officer Jonathan Guiterrez, said "A lot of things could have happened, He could have fallen asleep. We just don't know at this point."
