An update on the Christmas Day murder, we now know the name of the man who was gunned down outside a Butte Valley Mobile Home Park.


Authorities say 26-year-old Salvador Fuentes was found shot to death outside a trailer in the Foothil Mobile Home Park in Oroville Monday night.

Butte County Sheriff's deputies said Fuentes had been shot several times.

While investigators are still working to identify a suspect and motive for the shooting, they did say that the shooting does not appear to be random, and the victim and suspect may have known each other

The sheriff's office is continuing their investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact their office.
