Ventura County District Attorney Greg Totten announced Sept. 22 that his office will seek the death penalty against an Oxnard man accused of shooting and killing a businessman who was leaving a U.S. Bank branch in Oxnard the morning Aug. 16.

According to a news release, prosecutors will seek a death sentence for Jeffrey Aguilar, the man they allege murdered market owner Gurmohinder Singh.

Aguilar is also charged with second-degree robbery over the incident, along with two counts of attempted murder for allegedly shooting at police officers who stopped his car and apprehended him a week after Singh’s shooting, according to the Ventura County Star.

Totten’s office said there would be no further comment on the case.
