The woman arrested in connection with a deadly shooting in South Bakersfield will be charged with first-degree murder on Thursday.
Deputies arrested 30-year-old Krystal Wandick in connection with the Friday night deadly shooting of a man in south Bakersfield.
On March 17, 2017, Kern County Sheriff’s Office Homicide Detectives began investigating the shooting death of a male victim in the 4200 block of Gordon Street.
After conducting multiple interviews and following up on multiple tips received from the public, detectives developed probable cause to Wandick for murder. On March 21, 2017, detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Wandick.
Members of the Kern County Sheriff’s Office Gang Street Enforcement Unit and Gang Investigations Unit located Wandick in an apartment on Wainwright Dr. in Oildale. Wandick was arrested without incident and booked in the Kern County Sheriff’s Office Central Receiving Facility for her no-bail warrant for murder.
The victim’s name and official cause of death will be released by the coroner’s office at a later time. The Kern County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the public for their assistance in this investigation.
Without the cooperation of the public, this case might not have been solved as quickly as it was. Anyone with any additional information in this case is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 661-861-3110 or Secret Witness at 661-322-4040.
