A man was shot in Lamont on Wednesday night about an hour after deputies were called to a report to people fighting in front of a residence at the same location.
Deputies were dispatched to the 10900 block of Santa Ana Street at 10:21 p.m. and found a man lying on the sidewalk and suffering from gunshot wounds, sheriff's officials said. He was taken to Kern Medical Center, where he was listed in critical condition.
Detectives learned the victim had possibly been involved in a fight with at least one other person. No suspects had been identified.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 861-3110.
