OXNARD — A 19-year-old Oxnard man was arrested Saturday on suspicion of shooting a 16-year-old girl in the face.
John Ayala was taken to Ventura County Jail and charged with attempted murder.
The suspect, whom police believe may have been dating Ayala, was treated and released from St. John's Regional Medical Center.
Oxnard Police Officer Ray Mosones said he saw a driver run a stop sign about 8:30 a.m. in the 4400 block of Anchorage Street. The driver jumped out of his car and tried to run, Mosones said. But he gave chase and caught Ayala.
