Two suspected Oxnard gang members have been jailed on suspicion of attempted murder in the shooting last week of a 13-year-old gang member from Camarillo, authorities said Wednesday.

Robert Kenneth Urango, 18, and Daniel David Provencio, 21, were awakened about 7 a.m. Wednesday by deputies serving a search warrant at the home of Urango's mother in the 500 block of Madrina Place in Oxnard, authorities said.

Provencio had been living at the home with Urango, his mother and 21-year-old sister, Ventura County Sheriff's Sgt. Ralph Zermeno said.

Deputies believe Urango and Provencio were two of three or four Oxnard gang members who were sitting inside a compact car outside a fast-food restaurant on Arneill Road in Camarillo where the shooting occurred July 13.

Shortly before the restaurant closed, two or three Camarillo gang members, all on foot, confronted the Oxnard group. Shouting occurred and gang signs were flashed before one of the Oxnard gang members began firing, deputies said.

A Camarillo gang member was shot in the buttocks. He was treated at St. John's Regional Medical Center and released the same day.

Zermeno said deputies were still searching for one or two more Oxnard gang members.

"It's a sensitive case. I want to make sure we have got everything done," the sergeant said.

Urango and Provencio were being held in lieu of $250,000 bail each. They are scheduled to be arraigned Friday, sheriff's deputy at the jail said.
