A 15-year-old boy was struck and wounded in a drive-by shooting in Pomona Wednesday night.
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.
