OXNARD, Calif. - Oxnard police responded to a shooting Wednesday morning, just before 11:30 a.m.

It happened on the 1100 block of South "K" street.

When officers arrived, they were able to find witnesses who told them that a dispute between neighbors had happened.

At one point, two of those involved went back into their home and obtained firearms, then approached their neighbor again and challenged him.

Police said a 17-year-old male and a 14-year-old male were arrested after one of them actually fired his weapon. Fortunately, nobody was injured from the gunfire.

Both suspects then went back into their residence.

Investigators from the Oxnard Police Department Violent Crimes Unit responded to the scene to continue the investigation.

A search warrant was authored for the suspect residence and two firearms, and ammunition were recovered.

The two juveniles were arrested for attempted assault with a deadly weapon, making criminal threats, and brandishing a firearm.

The 17-year-old suspect was later lodged at Juvenile Hall and the 14-year-old suspect was released to his parents.

The investigation is ongoing and no further information is available at this time.
