Pomona police were looking Wednesday for two possible suspects who shot and killed a 16-year-old boy on a bicycle.

The boy was riding his bike in a residential neighborhood not far from his home Tuesday about 10 p.m. when he was gunned down.

Police said they received a call about “a man down” after gunshots were heard in the area of Laurel Avenue and Huntington Boulevard. Paramedics arrived to find the boy lying next to his bike. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police would not say where or how many times the teen was shot. But they are looking for two possible male suspects that fled in a dark-colored vehicle.
