Man Already Behind Bars Re-Arrested For 2014 Ventura County Killing

Jul 13, 2017

A man already in state prison was re-arrested for a murder more than three years ago in Ventura County.

Abraham Gonzales is accused of the February, 2014 shooting death of Austin Martin. The 24 year old victim died shortly after being shot at a home on the 200 block of West Juniper Street in Oxnard. Detectives say they eventually identified Gonzales as a suspect, but it took them time to collect enough evidence to charge the Oxnard man. Investigators aren’t talking about the motive for the killing.

Gonzales, who is now 21 years old, is at Centinela State Prison near El Centro for an unrelated conviction.
