OXNARD, Calif. – On the one-year anniversary of a deadly shooting of a Los Angeles man, Oxnard police are pleading with the local community to drum up possible leads that could help investigators make an arrest.

Investigators have continued to chase leads and work the case, but still no arrests have been made.
