SUSPECT(S):  Ricardo Garcia , 24 year old Oxnard resident

On August 18, 2012 at approximately 7:38 P.M, officers were dispatched to the 700 block of Cedar Street regarding shots being fired in the area. When officers arrived they contacted a witness who advised that a male subject fired several shots at a vehicle and then fled into a residence in the 1400 block of South “F” Street.
Officers surrounded the residence and made several announcements for the occupants of the residence to exit. Two occupants exited the residence and told officers that an unknown male subject was inside their residence. When the subject refused to come out of the residence, members of the Oxnard Police Department’s SWAT Team responded. After approximately 30 minutes, the subject, later identified as Ricardo Garcia, exited the residence and was taken into custody without further incident.  
During a search of the residence, a firearm and several bullets were located inside the residence. None of the residents were injured and they stated that they didn’t know the subject that had entered their residence. Garcia was booked at the Ventura County Jail for various weapon violations.
If anyone has information about this incident, they are encouraged to call Detective Collet at (805) 486-6228.  If you wish to remain anonymous you may call the violent crimes hotline at (805) 982-7070 or Ventura County Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
