DETAILS: Investigators with the Oxnard Police Department are asking for the public’s help in providing any information related to the murder of 35-year old Oxnard resident, Humberto Ochoa.
On December 15, 2014 at approximately 0135 hours, Humberto Ochoa left a business in the 700 block of South Oxnard Boulevard. Ochoa was with a group of friends and acquaintances preparing to get into their vehicles in a nearby parking lot. An unknown male suspect approached Ochoa and fired several rounds at Ochoa striking him. A female that was with Ochoa was also struck in the leg. The suspect fled from the scene to an awaiting vehicle. Ochoa was transported to the Ventura County Medical Center, but would later succumb to injuries he sustained by the gunshots. The female’s injury was non-life threatening.
Investigators believe the suspect may have been in the area prior to the shooting and was possibly waiting for the victim. It is believed that witnesses may have seen the suspect early in the evening in or around the area leading up to the homicide.
