LEMOORE — Earlier this month, two men were arrested after robbing and shooting a man in Lemoore and now detectives are looking for a woman who is possibly connected to the crime.

Officers said video surveillance showed a female, identified as Alejandra Maria Hernandez, as being with the two men after a crime occurred on Oct. 4 at a business in the 1100 block of North Lemoore Avenue. Surveillance from a building nearby showed the two men and Hernandez fleeing the crime scene.

Lemoore Police officers said earlier in the day, about 3 a.m., they were called to the 1000 block of North Lemoore Avenue for a report of a fight and a gunshot being heard in the area.

Police said a 29-year-old victim with a gunshot wound to his leg was found at the Fastrip gas station in Lemoore.

The victim told officers he had been in the 1000 block of Janine Way when two men approached him and demanded any property he had on him, police said.

Police said one of the men brandished a pistol and tried to rob the victim. A fight ensued and one of the suspects shot the victim in the leg during the robbery.

The men, identified as 35-year-old Beunju Moon and 24-year-old Ricardo "Ricky" Cervantes were later arrested after Lemoore officers recognized them as possibly being involved in the shooting.

Officials said Hernandez is currently a person of interest in this investigation and is asking anyone with information about her whereabouts to call Detective Sgt. Santos at 924-9574.
