The boy was armed with a knife and told Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies, who detained him about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, that he had harmed his grandfather, according to a report by Sgt. Jaime Gutierrez of the Pomona Police Department.
When officers went to a home in the 1800 block of Grier Street in Pomona to check on its occupants, they found 73-year-old Bruno Rodriguez dead inside, authorities said.
The boy was arrested on suspicion of murder and later taken to Los Padrinos Juvenile Hall in Downey, according to information provided by the Pomona Police Department. No further details were available.
