SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — As crowds jammed the city's main downtown thoroughfare for its annual Old Spanish Days Fiesta, police officers fatally shot an Oxnard man who allegedly pulled a loaded gun during a fight, police said Saturday.

The shooting occurred outside a restaurant at 11:50 p.m. Friday as hundreds of Fiesta revelers packed lower State Street.

The incident muted the city's festive air, which already was darkened by ash falling from a massive wildfire burning on the fringes of populated areas about 10 miles from downtown.
