Authorities arrested a 29-year-old man suspected of fatally shooting a man and seriously wounding a woman at a Ventura home.

On Saturday, Ventura Police Department Major Crimes Division detectives learned that Brandon Ellis was seen in Rosarito, Mexico. Detectives requested help from the FBI and U.S. Marshals Service to arrest Ellis.

Around 6:30 p.m., he was found at a bar in Rosarito and was taken into custody without incident. He was brought back to the states, transported to the Ventura Police Department for questioning and arrested.

He was booked into Ventura County Jail in lieu of $3 million bail and is scheduled to appear in Ventura County Superior Court on Monday.

During the investigation, detectives learned that the female victim - whose name is being withheld - and Ellis were once in a relationship. The woman, who was shot multiple times at a home in the 1600 block of Tapir Court, did not live at the residence, according to police. She is in serious condition at a local hospital.

A 47-year-old man was found shot to death in the home. Another woman and a 16-month-old baby were also found unharmed in another part of the house.

A motive has not been determined for the shooting, and the investigation was ongoing.

Anyone with more information is asked to call the Ventura Police Department at (805) 339-4416.
