A 16 year old male, resident of Camarillo was shot and killed while attending a party in Oxnard Saturday Morning. On 1-30-2010 at approximately 12:25 a.m., officers from the Oxnard Police Department responded to a call of a shooting victim in the 700 block of Rialto St. Upon the officer’s arrival, they located the victim inside of a residence who suffered a fatal gunshot wound.
While officers were on scene, they learned that two additional victims were hit by gunfire. The victims included an 18 year old female from Oxnard and a 22 male, also an Oxnard resident. Both subjects were transported to a local hospital and are expected to survive.
Investigators determined that the victims were attending a party at a residence located on Rialto St. The three victims were inside of the house standing in front of the entry way when several gunshots were fired through the door hitting the victims. Several people attending the party ran out of the back of the house to get away from the gunfire. The suspect has not been identified and it is not clear as to why the house was targeted. The name of the deceased victim is being with-held pending notification of next of kin. Investigators are asking anyone with information related to the shooting to contact Detective Jeff Kay at 385-8174 or leave a message on the Violent Crimes Hotline at 982-7070.
