TULARE COUNTY, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – Authorities have identified two suspects in a shooting at a gas station that left a man dead last month. Both have now been taken into custody.
Officials from the Tulare Police Department said 21-year-old Nathaniel Frank Lujano has been named as the primary suspect, and 23-year-old Jocelyn Rivera has been identified as an accomplice in the homicide.
Around 2:00 a.m. on Friday, August 19, officers were called out to a gas station in the area of Bardsley Avenue and Spruce Street after several people called 911 to report a man had been shot.
When officers arrived, they found a man who was unresponsive and suffering from several gunshot wounds.
The man, who has not been officially identified by authorities, did not survive his injuries.
Officers said they were able to track down Rivera on the day of the shooting and placed her under arrest.
She was booked into the Tulare County Jail on a charge of accessory to homicide.
Officers said Lujano was also wanted in connection to another fatal shooting that happened over the weekend near Blackstone Street and Kern Avenue.
On Monday night, officials announced that Lujano had been taken into custody with help from the Fresno Police Department.
The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Tulare Police Department.
