(Oxnard, CA) On April 20, 2012 at about 8 a.m., Oxnard PD officers responded to the 4500 block of Reading Drive regarding a shooting and attempted residential burglary. Officers discovered that the victim of the attempted burglary stopped the 15-year-old suspect as he was leaving the area. The victim decided to drive the suspect home and was directed by the suspect to the College Estates neighborhood. While driving through the neighborhood, the victim noticed that he was being followed by two Hispanic males in a blue, full sized pick-up truck. As a result, the victim stopped his vehicle in the 4400 block of Anchorage Street. The driver of the full sized pick-up truck then fired once into the victim’s vehicle, shattering a window; the victim was not injured. All three suspects fled the area in the pick-up truck. Officers checked the area for the suspects and the suspect vehicle but were not able to locate them.
Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to call Oxnard PD at (805) 385-7740 or Detective Steve Funk at (805) 385-7796.
