CAMARILLO, Calif. - Ventura County Sheriff's deputies arrested two men on Friday in connection to the murder of a Camarillo man Thursday night.

Around 10:55 p.m. Thursday, the Sheriff’s Communications Center received a 911 call regarding a disturbance at the Lamplighter Mobile Home Park in Camarillo.

Upon arriving, deputies found a 34-year-old man suffering from a single gunshot wound. The man was transported to Los Robles Hospital where he sadly died from his injuries.
