Ventura County Man Pleads Guilty To Voluntary Manslaughter For 2017 Shooting


A Ventura County man is expected to get a 22 year state prison sentence after entering a guilty plea to charges stemming from a fatal shooting.

Ventura County prosecutors say Jonathan Zambrano was standing outside of an Oxnard home with a group of people when he pulled out a gun, and shot Albert Salazar.  The Oxnard man told detectives he felt threatened by Salazar.

The wounded man later died at a hospital.

Zambrano pled guilty to voluntary manslaughter, and admitted using a gun.  He’ll be sentenced next month as a result of the plea deal.
