2 Men Shot, Killed in Pomona; Suspect Arrested in Ontario: Police

Two men died and another person was arrested following a shooting in Pomona on Sunday morning, authorities said.

Pomona police responded about 4:30 a.m. to the 100 block of East Second Street where they found two men suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, Sgt. Brian Hagerty told KTLA.

Both men were pronounced dead at the scene. A police news release identified one man as Robert Salinas, 37, of Pomona. The identity of the second man was being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

A short time later, Pomona police received information from the Ontario Police Department regarding a phone call made by a man who stated he was involved in the shooting, according to the news release.

Officers from both agencies went to the 1000 block of Berkeley Court in Ontario where they arrested the caller, identified as Christopher Peterson, 40, of Ontario, the statement read. Detectives said there was sufficient evidence to book him on suspicion of murder.

This was not believed to be a gang-related shooting, officials said. However, it appeared that there was some type of argument involving all three individuals, according to Hagerty.

Homicide detectives continued to investigate the case.

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