DETAILS:

On 6-10-2009, victim Joseph Jacquez (13 years old at the time of shooting) was walking in the area of Roosevelt Street and First Street when he was gunned down by several gang members. This shooting occurred in retaliation for a Southside gang member and girlfriend that had been assaulted and robbed the night before in the City of Ventura.

Investigators worked several leads that pointed out a vehicle that was used during the shooting. After identifying the persons involved with that vehicle, two additional suspects, identified as Pablo Cruz 2-21-91 and Victor Montejano 8-12-87, were arrested. Investigators continued with leads to identify an additional suspect in the homicide. After hundreds of staff-hours, the Oxnard Police Department’s Homicide Unit has arrested Juan (Johnny) Prado for his involvement in the homicide.

Mr. Prado was in custody for several unrelated weapons charges when detectives went to the Ventura County Jail and arrested Mr. Prado for the murder of Joseph Jacquez. We have attached a prior booking photo to the press release.

The investigation is continuing.
