(Oxnard, CA) On June 10, 2012 at about 12:32 p.m., Oxnard PD officers were dispatched to the 1000 block of North “A” Street. When officers arrived they contacted a victim who said his vehicle was just stolen by four male juveniles. He told the officers that he was moving items from his residence into his vehicle and had left his keys in the vehicle. When the victim returned to his vehicle he observed the juveniles inside his vehicle. When the victim confronted the juveniles, one of them brandished a handgun at him.
As the juvenile drove off in the victim’s vehicle, the victim started to chase after him. The juveniles stopped the vehicle and fired one shot at the victim. The victim was uninjured.
About an hour later, officers were dispatched to the 1300 block of Kumquat regarding a person who was armed with a handgun. When the officers arrived they contacted four juveniles that matched the description of the suspects from the carjacking. The victim was transported to Kumquat and identified the four juveniles as being the suspects who stole his vehicle.
The victim’s vehicle and the firearm used in the incident haven’t been located at this point.
