Second suspect arrested in Livermore shooting

Victim shot Aug. 2 on Arroyo Creek Trail

Police in Livermore have arrested a second suspect in connection with a shooting earlier this month.

Raul Bonnie Alcala, 19, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of attempted homicide and on two unrelated robbery warrants, police said.

On Aug. 2, officers with the Livermore Police Department responded to the Arroyo Creek Trail, west of Holmes Street, for a report of shots fired and located a 25-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound to his abdomen.

Police said the preliminary investigation revealed two Hispanic men in their 20s confronted the victim on the trail.

During the confrontation, one of the suspects shot the victim in the abdomen.

On Aug. 3, detectives were able to identify the first suspect as Fernando Cruz-Armento, 18. He was located in the 700 block of Grace Court and

arrested on suspicion of attempted homicide.

At the time of Cruz-Armento's arrest, police said they were also looking for Alcala in connection with the shooting.
