Ventura | Negligent Discharge of a Firearm and Child Endangerment Arrest

Ventura Police Department – Incident Press Release

On July 14th at 4:02PM, the Ventura Police Department Command Center received a 911 call of a suicidal subject that was armed with a gun inside a residence in the 2100 block of Sunridge Dr. It was reported by a family member that the subject, later identified as Brian Harvan, DOB: 12/27/91, a Ventura Resident, had also fired the gun. Officers responded and set up a perimeter around the residence.

Once it was determined that all other family members were out of the residence, officers were able to make verbal contact with Harvan. Officers were successful in getting Harvan to exit the residence and he was taken into custody.

As a result of the investigation, it was determined Harvan armed himself with a handgun and fired a round off after making threats to harm himself. The bullet went through several walls, ending up in an adjacent room that was occupied by two small children.

Harvan was arrested for negligent discharge of a firearm and felony child endangerment. No one was injured as a result of this incident.
