VENTURA : Man Shot on City Street Is in Stable Condition

The condition of a man who was shot in the back on a Ventura street Friday night improved Saturday, but police had no new leads into what led to the shooting.

Guillermo Tejeda's condition was upgraded from critical to stable after he was treated for a bullet that entered his back and exited through his abdomen, according to officials at Ventura County Medical Center.

The shooting took place in front of an auto repair shop on North Ventura Avenue about 7:30 p.m. Friday, authorities said.

According to police, witnesses said Tejeda, 28, argued with the gunman before being shot, but others disputed that account.

None of the witnesses were able to help identify a suspect, police said.
