DETAILS:
On the above date and time, an Oxnard Police Department patrol officer was in the area of the above location when he observed a fight break out between two different groups who were leaving the bar.  He further observed one of the subjects, later identified as Sergio Castro (DOB 9/19/91), produce a handgun and fire a shot.  The officer immediately confronted and disarmed Castro without incident.  Multiple officers responded to the location to assist and several other subjects were detained.  During the investigation, officers learned that Castro was striking the male victim on the head with the handgun when it discharged.  The male victim had moderate head injuries from being struck multiple times with the handgun, but no gunshot wound.  He was treated at the scene but declined to be transported to the hospital via ambulance.  Castro was arrested for Assault with a Deadly Weapon, and numerous other weapons violations involving an Ex-Felon being in possession of a firearm.  Hector Salcedo (DOB 12/19/87), who was an associate of Castro’s, was also arrested for battering a female victim during the same incident.
