Part of 10 Freeway to be named for slain Pomona officer

POMONA, Calif. (KABC) -- Part of the 10 Freeway in Upland will be renamed in honor of a fallen Pomona police officer.

Officer Gregory Casillas, 30, was shot to death in March as he and his partner approached an apartment where a reckless-driving suspect was holed up.

The 10 Freeway between North San Antonio Avenue and Mountain Avenue will be named after Casillas.

A date for the official dedication hasn't been announced yet.

His accused shooter, Isaias Valencia, is in custody facing murder and other charges.
