OXNARD POLICE DEPARTMENT
On 01/21/08 at approximately 1353 hours officers responded to a call of shots fired in the 400 block of East Guava Street. Nobody was injured during the shooting but several shell casings were located. A search of the area for the suspects was conducted with negative results. During the investigation it was determined to be gang/tagger related.
Investigators from the Violent Crimes Unit received information that the suspect vehicle was located in the 2400 block of Tulare Pl. Officers secured the residence until a search warrant could be obtained. Further investigation revealed there was enough probable cause to support additional search warrants based on association with other gang members/tagging crews. As a result search warrants were executed at several locations in Oxnard and a residence in Camarillo. Several weapons including two assault rifles and several handguns along with items of gang paraphernalia were located and seized.
If anyone has information regarding the incident is encouraged to contact Detective Kujawa at 385-7547 or Crime Stoppers at 385-TALK.
An investigation is continuing.
