Detectives with the Oxnard Police Department’s Major Crimes Unit have made an arrest in a homicide case that occurred on March 26, 2016. The victim, 31 year old Steven Magallon, was shot multiple times during a confrontation in the 300 block of Cuesta Del Mar Drive. Magallon was transported by ambulance to the Ventura County Medical Center, but he later died on April 7, 2016. The Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled Magallon’s death a homicide.

Detectives from the Violent Crimes Unit (VCU) and the Major Crimes Unit responded to the shooting scene to assume the investigation. After Magallon’s death, Major Crimes Detectives continued with the investigation. Detectives followed up on leads and served numerous search warrants in hopes of locating evidence related to Magallon’s death. Through the course of the investigation, Major Crimes Detectives were able to obtain enough evidence to identify and arrest a suspect in the death of Steven Magallon.

On March 7, 2017, Major Crimes Detectives arrested Jesus Troncoso, a 16 year old Oxnard resident, and charged him with the murder of Steven Magallon. Troncoso was already in custody at the Ventura County Juvenile Justice Center when he was arrested by detectives. Troncoso was in custody for charges unrelated to the homicide.

Major Crimes Detectives believe Troncoso, who was 15 years old when the murder was committed, shot and killed Magallon during a gang related confrontation.

Detectives will continue to investigate the case in order to identify any other persons who were involved in the murder of Steven Magallon. Detectives urge anyone with information about the murder of Steven Magallon to contact Detective Miguel Serrato at (805) 385-7688. You can also provide valuable information and remain anonymous by calling the Violent Crimes Hotline at (805) 982-7070, or contact the Ventura County Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477, or visit the website www.venturacountycrimestoppers.org
