Pomona police got the call and arrived on the scene, finding the victim suffering from gunshot wounds.

Witnesses in the area said they heard at least four shots. Some people said they saw the suspect fleeing on foot. A security guard said the suspect was wearing a white shirt, dark pants and took money from the scene.
