The shooting in the 2900 block of Hollander Street was reported at about 9:30 p.m., said Sgt. Jaime Gutierrez with the Pomona Police Department.

The teen was outside when someone opened fire from a dark colored compact vehicle, Gutierrez said.

Brian Gomez said he found his wounded brother after returning from a businesses meeting.

"He had got shot in the upper chest ... punctured his lung," Gomez said.

Emergency crews airlifted the teen, who was expected to survive, to a local hospital, Gutierrez said.

"He didn't deserve what he got ... He's only a child and that shouldn't happen to him," said Gomez, who described his brother as a “good kid.”

The wounded teen did not appear to have any gang ties, Gutierrez said.

Investigators were searching for two men believed to have been in the dark colored four-door sedan used in the shooting, Gutierrez said.

It was unclear if the shooters had gang ties.

The shooting was the second in Pomona in two nights. A 14-year-old boy was shot in a similar style drive-by shooting across town shortly before 10 p.m. Tuesday, the San Gabriel Valley Tribune reported.

That victim was also taken to a hospital for treatment, the newspaper reported.

Anyone with information about the shootings was asked to contact the Police Department at 909-620-2085.
