Posted on Friday, October 12, 2012 2:03pm

Ventura County Sheriff’s detectives say they’ve arrested two teenagers for last summer’s murder of a 14 year old boy in a park.

Joshua Burciaga was shot to death in Saticoy Park late in the evening of June 27th. Deputies responding to reports of shots being fired found the fatally wounded boy lying in the grass in the park.

On July second, detectives conducted raids in the Ventura and Oxnard areas in connection with the murder, seizing guns, ammunition, and making two arrests. They didn’t release further details at the time.

Now, they say they’ve arrested a 17 year old teen from Ventura, and a 17 year old teen from Oxnard in what they’re calling a gang related killing.
