A 28-year-old Oxnard man was shot in the head early Saturday as he rode in a car, and three people have been arrested in connection with the shooting, authorities said.
Jose Perez was taken to St. John's Regional Medical Center after the 12:30 a.m. shooting, said Oxnard Police Sgt. Cliff Troy. Hospital officials did not release Perez's condition Saturday at the request of family members.
Four people were in the car in the 600 block of Colonia Road when several shots were fired, Troy said. Perez was hit once.
Raymond Coronel, 26, of Oxnard and two juveniles, both 17, were arrested within two hours of the shooting. The three were booked on suspicion of attempted murder, Troy said.
