Ventura police and County Sheriff deputies conducted an extensive search of an area between Cabrillo Village, Saticoy, and the Santa Clara River Thursday night after someone apparently fired shots at a vehicle and that vehicle then crashed into a fence at the south end of Saticoy Avenue.
When officers arrived shortly after 8 PM, they found the vehicle abandoned with a bullet hole in the door.
They also spotted several individuals running towards the riverbed, one of them armed with a gun.
Officers and deputies set up a perimeter and Copter 3 and two K-9's were brought in and they conducted an extensive search of the area but did not find the suspects.
There were no reports of anyone being injured.
Even though the active search was called off, the investigation into what happened is continuing.
