Victim identified in fatal shooting at Oroville mobile home park

A man found dead with gunshot wounds at an Oroville mobile home park on Christmas night has been identified by the Butte County Sheriff's Office as 26-year-old Salvador Fuentes of Oroville.

The motive for the shooting has not been determined and a suspect has not been identified. Detectives do not think it was a random shooting, and evidence at the scene indicates the victim may have known the shooter, according to a Sheriff’s Office news release.

Deputies received a report about 8 p.m. Monday of shots fired in the area of the Foothill Mobile Home Park and arrived to find Fuentes with multiple gunshot wounds lying in front of a residence inside the park, the news release said.

Anyone with information regarding the shooting is asked to call the Butte County Sheriff’s Office Investigation Unit at 530-538-7671.
