Police have made an arrest in connection to the murder of a 21-year-old Ventura man earlier this year.
Joseph Michael Castro, 20, who police say is a Santa Barbara area gang member, was arrested early Tuesday morning after SWAT teams served two high-risk gang search warrants in Santa Barbara.
Police say Castro was arrested after a home in the 700 block of Cook Avenue was searched.
On Feb. 19, Kelly Hunt died after being shot near the 1000 block of Olive Street.
The investigation is ongoing and police say they are still looking for two other people believed to be connected to the case.
Castro will be booked into Santa Barbara County Jail on suspicion of murder, conspiracy to commit murder, and participation in a criminal street gang.
Bail will be set at $1,100,000.
