SOQUEL -- A 23-year-old Soquel man was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of firing a shotgun at a 28-year-old family member.
No one was hurt in the shooting, which was reported about 9:30 a.m. Sunday at a home on the 4000 block of Fairway Drive in Soquel, said Santa Cruz County sheriff's deputy Ryan Kennedy.
Deputies continued to investigate what prompted the shooting, Kennedy said.
The alleged shooter, Benjamin James Chirco, lived at the home on Fairway Drive. Authorities obtained a warrant, searched the home on Tuesday and seized a shotgun believed to have been used in the shooting.
Chirco was arrested on suspicion of gross negligent discharge of a firearm, authorities said. He remained in Santa Cruz County Jail in lieu of $25,000 bail, according to jail records.

Environmentalists plead for Scotts Valley to ban plastic bags

SCOTTS VALLEY -- Scotts Valley leaders tackled a range of topics at the City Council meeting on Wednesday, from helping the Boys & Girls Club set up in town by deferring fees to declaring a 45-day moratorium on outdoor storage permits.
The council also unanimously agreed to move ahead with turning the ground for a community garden on an empty plot between the Scotts Valley Senior Center and the Scotts Valley Community Center on Kings Village Road.
However, the topic that drew the most attention and prompted more than a dozen folks to voice concerns to city officials was the plea for Scotts Valley to adopts a ban on single-use plastic bags -- something that has already been done by every other city in Santa Cruz County and the county itself.
A passionate call was made largely by representatives of the local environmental nonprofit Save Our Shores for Scotts Valley to outlaw the use of plastic bags and impose a fee on paper bags despite the subject not being on the council's agenda.
The lobbying took place during a time in the council meeting known as oral communications in which the public is invited to talk on any matter it likes, and council members are prohibited from commenting on the matters brought up.
So, Save Our Shores and others walked away without knowing if a bag ban will be a future priority.
Arguments for the ban mostly involved concerns for protecting the environment and sea life.
A group of fifth-grade students from Mount Madonna School took turns reading to the council excerpts from a recent report they did concerning the impact of plastic bags on the endangered sea turtle as part of the lobbying effort, a presentation that could have turned the most hardened skeptic.
"One way it can harm sea animals is they think the bag is food and it fills up their stomach and then they don't eat and if they don't eat, they die," one girl said.
Plastic bag bans are in place in about 90 cities or counties throughout the state.
A renewed effort is underway in Sacramento by Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Pacoima, to prohibit single-use plastic bans in all California grocery stores, convenience stores and liquor stores.
