2 dead in shooting at Oxnard Transportation Center

Police said Tuesday they knew of no motive for the fatal shooting of a man and woman early Sunday at the Oxnard Transportation Center.

The Oxnard Police Department said officers were called to the center at 201 E. Fourth St. at 6:30 a.m. Sunday for a report of two people who were unresponsive and bleeding from gunshot wounds.

On Monday, the Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the victims as  Nicole M. Albillar, 33, and William D. Tenner, 57. Both were described as Oxnard residents. The cause and manner of death were still pending, the agency said.

Oxnard police said they found the pair on a bench near the train platform just north of the center, and both had likely been bleeding for some time. They were likely discovered hours after they had been shot, police said. The victims, whom police described as homeless, were found by transit center security personnel.
