Two Hospitalized in Pomona Shootings



    A pair of shootings in Pomona late Friday left two men wounded, authorities said.

    In one shooting, police responded to Pomona Valley Community Hospital at 10:52 p.m. Friday, where they found Isacc Michael Leon suffering from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound, said Sgt. Iain Miller.

    Leon refused to provide Pomona police with details about what happened to him or even where he was shot, a sergeant said.

    "The victim was uncooperative and unable to provide detailed suspect information and the motive is unknown at this time," the sergeant said.

    In the other attack, a man who was shot in front of a Pomona liquor store reportedly walked more than a block to a 7-Eleven before calling authorities.

    The first shooting took place about 10:30 p.m. Friday, in front of a liquor store at 588 East LaVerne Avenue, said Pomona police Lt. Chuck Becker.

    The victim, 58-year-old Raymond Sears of Pomona, walked more than a block to the 7-Eleven store at LaVerne and Towne Avenue before he called police, Becker said.

    Sears was found in front of the 7-Eleven store suffering from what Becker described as a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.

    "He indicated that the incident actually occurred in front of the liquor store," Becker said. "He was unable to provide detailed suspect information and the motive for the shooting is unknown at this time."

    Earlier in the week, shootings in Pomona left two dead and another hospitalized.

    Anyone with information about the shootings can call Pomona detectives at 909-620-2085. Tipsters who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
