A 50 year old Oxnard Resident was shot and killed outside of his residence Thursday evening. On 12/24/09 at approximately 2320 hours, officers from the Oxnard Police Department responded to a call of a shooting victim in the 200 block of Alpine St. Upon the officer’s arrival, they discovered Mario Cisneros lying on the side of his residence suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Cisneros was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.

It appears that Cisneros was alone outside of his house at the time of the shooting. Detectives determined that suspect in the case was a neighbor of the victim. The suspect was identified as 21 year old Alex Compian. It is believed that the shooting was the result of an ongoing dispute between the two.

Detectives along with SWAT Team members began to search for the suspect who was believed to have remained in the Oxnard Area. At approximately 3:00 pm Compian was located inside of an apartment in the 300 Block of Palm Dr. Compian surrendered peacefully to the SWAT Officers. He was booked into Ventura County Jail for murder.

An investigation is continuing.
