Authorities are investigating the deaths of two men and several overnight shootings in one South Coast city.

Oxnard Police say one is a deadly shooting and the other is a suspicious death.

Officials say just after 10 Saturday night, officers responded to the 3300 block of Merced Place for a report of shots fired. They found an unresponsive man who had been struck by gunfire lying in the roadway. He was declared dead at the scene.

Then, just before 3 am Sunday, police officers responded to a call of gunshots heard in the 1300 block of Azalea Street. They located an unresponsive 27-year-old man in the south alley and he was declared dead, but authorities were unable to find any significant injuries.

Two more shootings were reported, leaving a 20-year-old man with non-life threatening injuries.

It’s not known if the four shootings are related.
