One man is behind bars, and more are being sought in connection with what’s being called a gang related killing in Ventura County.

Santa Paula Police responding to a call of shots fired on the 400 block of Dartmouth Road around nine Monday night found a 21 year old man who had been shot to death.

Witnesses told officers about a vehicle fleeing the scene, which led to a chase.

Investigators say people in the car threw guns out the vehicle’s windows as they tried to elude officers.

The vehicle eventually stopped, with one man being arrested, and two others escaping on foot.

The shooting victim has been identified as Ulises Virto, of Santa Paula. Authorities aren’t releasing the name of the man who’s in custody as a result of the pursuit.
