CHICO, Calif. - At 8:20 p.m. on Friday, Chico Police received several calls of neighbors hearing gunshots at an apartment complex on Running Springs Circle and Burnap Avenue. 

Upon their arrival at the scene, police said they found one man shot.

One neighbor, who wished to be kept anonymous, said that this was unusual for the neighborhood. 

"A bunch of neighbors, we all started calling, everybody started asking if others were safe. People are very startled right now. It's very scary, we came outside of our apartments, we saw numerous police officers -- the caution tape -- it's definitely nerve wracking. It's very unfortunate whatever could have happened," said the neighbor. 

Burnap Avenue was closed off until just before 11:00 p.m.

Some showers are expected in your Monday forecast, but will mostly be in the northern end of the valley and mountains. Scattered mountain showers linger Tuesday, then dry and warmer weather takes hold for the middle of the week.
