    Attempted Murder in Ventura | Arrest Made with help of K9 Officer

    Ventura Police Department – Incident Press Release

    On March 25th at 4:28 AM, patrol officers responded to report of a shooting in the area of the 400 block of East Santa Clara Street. When the first officer arrived on scene, he found the suspect hiding near a planter on Santa Clara Street near California Street. As the officer made contact with him, the suspect was initially uncooperative, and he threw a handgun into nearby bushes.  Additional officers arrived and assisted with detaining the suspect.  The weapon was recovered.

    The subsequent investigation revealed this was a robbery.  The suspect had approached two vagrants living nearby, pulled a gun and demanded their property.  While he was committing the robbery, a “good Samaritan” heard the commotion and not knowing it was a robbery, attempted to intervene.  When he intervened, the suspect turned towards him with the gun and chased him into a nearby vehicle.  The suspect began beating his fist on the window and fired 3 rounds at the “good Samaritan”.  All three rounds hit the vehicle but none of them struck the victim. After firing the initial 3 rounds, the suspect then turned and fired 2 additional rounds that struck a nearby commercial building.  The commercial building was uninhabited.  After firing the rounds, the suspect fled on foot and was contacted by officers.

    At the conclusion of the investigation, the suspect was arrested for attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, armed robbery, shooting at an occupied vehicle and shooting at an uninhabited building. No one was injured during this incident.
