Posted on Friday, May 17, 2013 2:30pm

An arrest has been made in connection with the shootings of a man, and woman in Oxnard last month.

On April 22nd, a group of men confronted a man, and woman walking on the 600 block of Devonshire Drive. After some words were exchanged, the 18 year old Oxnard woman, and the 19 year old man were both shot by a member of the group. The injuries weren’t life threatening.

Oxnard Police detectives say after nearly a month of investigation, they’ve arrested Ruben Anthony Hernandez of Ventura for the shootings.

They say in addition with two counts of attempted murder for the April 22nd shooting, they’ve also charged the 19 year old with an additional two counts for another incident in which no one was hurt.

Investigators believe the attacks were gang motivated.
