The girl and teenage boy were confronted by two men about 11 p.m. at the corner of Olive and Glenroy streets, said Sgt. Robert Baker of the Pomona Police Department.

The men asked the girl and her companion if they had a gang affiliation, Baker said. When the pair said they did not, one of the men of the men pulled out a handgun and started shooting.

The young man ran away and was unhurt, but the girl was hit and died at the scene, Baker said.
