On 6/27/2012, investigators from the Ventura County Sheriff's Major Crimes Unit along with deputies from the Sheriff's Gang Unit responded to a shooting that occurred at Saticoy Park in the unincorporated area east of the City of Ventura.  Responding personnel found a wounded male juvenile lying on the grass.  The wounded juvenile was pronounced deceased at the scene.  During the initial response and investigation there was evidence of fresh 'gang graffiti' and other information leading investigators to believe this was a gang related homicide.  


After a lengthy investigation and collection of additional evidence, the Ventura County Major Crimes Unit arrested a male juvenile for the murder on 7/17/2012. The juvenile was booked into the Ventura County Juvenile Justice Center.


Investigators and officers from the Ventura Police Department, Ventura County Probation Department, California Parole, and Oxnard Police Department assisted the Sheriff's Office with the investigation and with the execution of numerous search warrants.  Additional evidence was collected relating to the crime along with the weapons used in the murder.  The investigation led to the arrest of a second juvenile for the murder on 10/4/2012.  The second juvenile suspect was booked into the Ventura County Juvenile Justice Center as well.
