LOCKWOOD — Monterey County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a Lockwood man in connection with a shooting in October 2020.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, staff at Mee Memorial Hospital in King City reported a victim of a gunshot wound on the evening of Oct. 4. Investigators identified the victim as 37-year-old Joshua Hamilton of Lockwood.
