Motive unclear in apparent Oxnard murder-suicide that left 3 dead

Police are still investigating an apparent murder-suicide in Oxnard that left two women and a man dead, officials said Thursday.

The women were found after officers responded about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday to a report of shots fired in the 1200 block of Hull Place, police said.

About 30 minutes later, police received another report of shots fired in the 200 block of south Marquita Street. They found a man dead from a gunshot wound.

"We have reason to believe that his wound was self-inflicted," Det. Luis McArthur told The Times.

He said investigators had not established a motive but suspected the slayings were related. The names of the dead were not yet released.

Anyone with information about the incident is encouraged to call the department at (805) 385-7650.
