We’re following a murder investigation this morning in Butte County.

A man has been shot and killed in Butte Valley near Oroville.

Now investigators now searching for the suspect in his murder.

Action News Now reporter James Villalobos was at the scene Monday night, and he was back there again Tuesday morning to give us the latest details.

The shooting happened just before 8:00 Monday night as many were enjoying Christmas dinner with their families here at the Foothills Mobile Home Park, which is about a mile and a half down the road from Butte College.

James first arrived to the scene at around 9:00 Monday night and the family of the victim was very visibly upset, hearing many of them crying and screaming.

The Butte County Sheriff's office said the victim of this shooting was a Hispanic male, and given the suspicious nature of this shooting, it is being investigated as a homicide.

James spoke to many different neighbors who told him they heard anywhere from 3-6 gun shots.

Mark Serchio is in the military and is visiting his parents who live here at the mobile home park for the holidays.

He said he and his mom were out on their porch when they heard the gun shots.

He said, "It's just crazy to think about we're all enjoying Christmas and then next moment someone's life's getting taken away right around the corner, especially during the holiday season, it's just sad to see.”

At this time we don't know the identity of the victim, but we will continue to update you as information becomes available.
