At approximately 2321 hours on Wednesday, 3/17/2010 Oxnard Police detectives were investigating an incident that had been reported to them about three hours earlier. The detectives were investigating allegations of robbery and sexual assault that had been committed earlier that day upon a seventeen year old female. The female victim’s identity is being withheld, because of her age and nature of the crime.
During the course of the investigation, a suspect had been identified (Luis Tejada, an eighteen year old Oxnard resident) and detectives attempted to contact him. While in the course of making contact with him in the 4900 block of South Rose Avenue, Tejada was struck by gunfire from an Oxnard Police officer. It is believed that the discharge of the officer’s weapon was not intentional.
Tejada sustained a single gunshot wound and was transported to an area medical facility. The wound is not life threatening.
The identity of the involved officer is being withheld. The officer has been placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard procedure for such events.
An investigation is continuing.
