An Ojai Valley man remained behind bars June 22, accused of firing a weapon into an Oak View residence and slashing the tires of a vehicle. Michael Silver, 18, of Oak View, was taken into custody June 20 by detectives from the Ventura County Sheriff's Office (VCSO).
VCSO investigators responded to a June 19 report of shots fired in the 400 block of Larmier Avenue. Through interviews and a search of the neighborhood, detectives were able to establish Silvar as a suspect, Hollowell said. Questioned at his residence, Silvar admitted to two shooting incidents at the Larmier Avenue address and the slashing of tires on a vehicle parked there, according to the police report. A loaded, .357 Ruger handgun and a knife were allegedly found at the suspect's home.
