Sonia Angelita Castaneda-Montoya, 28

Sonia Angelita Castaneda-Montoya, a 28-year-old Latina, was fatally shot Saturday, March 16, in the 900 block of West Holt Avenue in Pomona, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

Members of a multi-jurisdictional gang task force were driving through a parking lot about 9:45 p.m. Saturday when they were confronted by a female brandishing a handgun, said sheriff's Sgt. Rich Pena.

A shooting occurred and Castaneda-Montoya was later pronounced dead at the scene. No officers were injured. A handgun was recovered at the scene.

Although the Sheriff’s Department is assisting Pomona police in the investigation, it was not clear if it was a Pomona officer who shot the woman.
