Update | Shooting in Port Hueneme – Police: There may be 2 Shooters Involved, 7 Year Old Girl Remains in Critical Condition

Port Hueneme Police Department – Incident Press Release

The 7-year-old female victim, identified as Kaylanaa Davis, was airlifted to Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles and is currently in a coma in critical condition. The mother, Maryam Davis, was treated for her two gunshots wounds to her leg and is currently with her child at Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles. 

The Port Hueneme Police Department does not have any suspect information to release at this time but is currently working with the assistance of the Oxnard Police Department and Ventura County Sheriff’s Office. Based on the number and type of shell casings recovered from the scene, investigators are working on the theory that there may have been two shooters. 

We have not ruled out any motives at this time but we do believe the residence was the intended target. 

Earlier, the Ventura County Fire Department sent out a press release in response to our initial press release which had indicated “a lack of response from the fire station”.  The response time from the initial doorbell ring till the fire personnel exited the building was approximately two minutes. Police Chief Andrew Salinas stated, “As you can imagine, this felt like an eternity to the father who was holding their non-responsive child in his arms.  When the officers arrived, the family was demanding help indicating that they were not getting a response from the fire station. With that, the officer decided to transport the victim in his police unit at the request of the family.” Within a few seconds of leaving the fire station with the 7-year-old victim, fire personnel exited the building and subsequently treated the mother for the gunshot wounds to her leg.

    Why can’t the fire station review the footage and account for this matter?
