NEWS RELEASE: District Attorney Erik Nasarenko announced a guilty verdict was returned by a Ventura County jury in a case where two gang members were involved in a deadly shooting.

Raymond Bolanos of Oxnard was found guilty of murder in the second-degree of Alejandro Hernandez. A jury also convicted Bolanos of attempted murder, being a felon in possession of a firearm and firing a gun from a vehicle.

Co-defendant, Julian Nunez of Santa Paula, was found guilty of assault with a deadly weapon, being a felon in possession of a firearm, and possession of an assault weapon in California.

The nine-week long trial was conducted in two phases due to recent changes in the law.


Fentanyl-related case filings have exploded in recent years. From 2015-2019 the DA’s Office had 36 Fentanyl cases. From 2020 & 2021 there have been more than 350 Fentanyl-related filings.

@vcsheriff and @oxnardunion have partnered on a new campaign to raise awareness about how DEADLY a tiny amount of Fentanyl can be.

DA Erik Nasarenko recently spoke out about the rise in criminal cases involving Fentanyl while on the @acornnewspapers Branching Out Podcast. #OnePillCanKill

Over the weekend, five innocent lives were taken at an LGBTQ nightclub in Colorado Springs. Nineteen others were wounded.

The suspected gunman has since been arrested on murder and hate crime charges.
