Drive-by shooters hit West Covina woman, get arrested

The suspected perpetrators of a Los Angeles County shooting against a 30-year-old woman have been arrested by West Covina Police Department officers. The incident occurred on January 27 shortly after midnight, on the 500 block of South Charvers Avenue in West Covina, a residential neighborhood.

Responding to 9-1-1 calls the time of the incident, West Covina police officers found the female victim with a gunshot wound to her upper torso. Local media reported that the offence occurred during a likely drive-by shooting, though police declined to state whether the woman was the intended target.

Medics from the West Covina Fire Department transported the victim to hospital for treatment, the West Covina Police Department said in a news release. As of February 5, she was in stable condition and expected to survive.

Leads received allowed police detectives to explore the potential identities of suspects. By late January, detectives had identified two young men as suspects in connection with the attempted murder, police said.

Law enforcement officials arrested Steven Hernandez, aged 19 and of La Puente, near to his home on January 30. The following day, February 1, they arrested Trevall Jones, aged 18 and of Pomona, near his own home. Hernandez was charged with attempted murder, assault with deadly weapon using a semi-automatic firearm, and shooting at an inhabited dwelling.

Jones, for his part, was charged with assault with deadly weapon using a semi-automatic firearm, and shooting at an inhabited dwelling. Both men were arrested without incident, and pleaded not guilty.

Bail for Hernandez and Jones was set at $1 000 000, and their preliminary court hearing scheduled for March 5.
