Center from a male caller who identified himself as Luis Morado. He requested that police officers respond for a domestic dispute involving he and Meagan Hockaday. Two Oxnard Police Officers were dispatched to the apartment in the 500 block of West Vineyard Avenue. The first officer on scene, Officer Roger Garcia, heard screaming coming from the apartment.  He approached the apartment and was met by the male reporting party near the open front door. Within seconds, Hockaday advanced on both of them with a knife and an officer-involved shooting occurred at close range. The shooting took place less than twenty (20) seconds after Officer Garcia’s initial contact with Morado at the front door. The second officer, Officer Andrew Grande, arrived at the apartment approximately forty-five (45) seconds after the shooting.

Officer Garcia immediately summoned Emergency Medical Services (EMS).  EMS responded and attended to Hockaday, but she was pronounced dead at the scene. A knife was recovered a short distance from Hockaday’s body.

The incident was captured on Officer Garcia’s digital audio recorder that was activated prior to his initial contact with Morado. It is the policy of the Oxnard Police Department that “all enforcement contacts, interviews with victims, witnesses, and suspects, and calls for service” be digitally recorded.
