Officer James Jensen was shot and killed by friendly fire during a high risk warrant service. The agency's tactical team was serving a warrant on a house where three heavily armed drug-ring leaders were believed to be located.

Another officer, whose vision was obscured as the result of smoke grenades, mistook Officer Jensen for an armed suspect and opened fire on him with a shotgun. He was transported to a local hospital where he died a short time later.

Officer Jensen had served with the Oxnard Police Department for 4 years. He is survived by his wife and two daughters.
