PAROLED DRUG DEALER FOUND FATALLY SHOT.

Byline: Charles F. Bostwick Staff Writer

LANCASTER - A convicted drug dealer, paroled from state prison last week, was found shot to death early Thursday in front of a Lancaster apartment complex.

Ruben Newhouse, 27, who deputies believe had been living in Palmdale, was found shortly after 2 a.m. lying near the curb in the 1300 block of West Avenue J-2, authorities said.

``We don't have any witnesses to the shooting yet,'' sheriff's homicide Detective Donna Cheek said Thursday.

Neighbors reported hearing gunshots, then the sound of vehicles driving away, Cheek said. Newhouse was found lying on the parkway in front of one of a row of apartment buildings on Avenue J-2.

Newhouse had been in and out of state prison since age 18 for drug-possession and drug-sale convictions in Kern County and for parole violations, state Department of Corrections records show.

Newhouse's most recent conviction was in January in Kern County for possession of a firearm by an ex-felon, records show. He was released on parole Oct. 4.
