Shooting in Ventura

Ventura Police Department – Incident Press Release

On 5/25/21 at about 10:20 PM the Ventura Police Command Center received a 911 call of shots being heard and a male subject yelling for help in the 1000 block of South Seaward Av.

Responding officers arrived on scene to several subjects running from the area. They also located the victim who was suffering from several shotgun wounds.

The ensuing investigation revealed that numerous subjects had occupied rooms at the motel, and many were standing outside in the parking lot. Three subjects approached the group and one armed with a shotgun fired several rounds at the victim. The suspects fled the area in a vehicle parked nearby.

The victim was struck several times and was transported to Ventura County Medical Center with non-life threating injuries. There were no other victims of the shooting.

It appears that this was not a random act and may be drug and gang related.

Anyone with any information is urged to contact Detective Sergeant Bill Dolan at 805-339-4444.
