A shootout between Oxnard police and an armed homeless woman left the woman hospitalized at Ventura County Medical Center.
It happened Wednesday afternoon in Del Sol Park on Camino Del Sol in the La Colonia neighborhood of Oxnard, just before 12:30 p.m. Police investigators are trying to determine who fired the first shot and would not say how many times the woman was hit.
As many as thirty-six police officers responded within minutes, cordoning off the crime scene and a stroller left in the middle of it.
A police spokesperson confirmed to NewsChannel 3 that the woman was suicidal and armed with a gun. The stroller was used to haul her belongings.
None of the officers were hurt.
