I agree tommy. the public has a right to know.this would not happen with OPD. ph seems to sweep things under the rug a little.


I’m gonna presume the suspect fits the description of ‘A person with a gun.’ But holy smokes, Citizens Journal and Port Hueneme Police Department: are there ANY details of the description of the shooter? The shooting was in broad daylight! No mention of an arrest, the shooter is still at large.
