A story for every victim

Timmy Moore, 17

Timmy Moore, a 17-year-old black youth, was shot and killed Friday, Jan. 29, at Orange Grove and La Verne avenues in Pomona, authorities said.

Police said they received "numerous calls" from witnesses reporting the shooting that occurred shortly before 4 p.m. at Ted Greene Park.

A 17-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of killing Moore and injuring two other teenagers in the incident, Pomona police said. Police had originally reported a second teen was killed in the shooting, but the unidentified youth is brain dead and on life support, authorities said.

Officers arrived to find the two most seriously injured boys still at the park. The third youth was also treated for gunshot injuries and is expected to survive.

The officers tracked down the suspect shortly after, they said. He was hiding behind a house at the southern edge of the park on North Orange Grove Avenue. They booked him into the Pomona Police Jail on suspicion of murder.

Detectives are seeking additional information. Anyone with information about the incident is encouraged to call them at (909) 620-2085.
