POMONA – A woman was fatally shot in Pomona, and police Wednesday sought the public’s help to find her ex-boyfriend, who was named in a warrant as her alleged killer.
The crime was reported about 10 p.m. Tuesday in the 1800 block of San Bernardino Avenue, said Pomona police Sgt. Iain Miller
“Officers found a female victim down on the porch of a residence suffering from an apparent gunshot wound,” Miller said in a statement.
The fatally wounded woman was identified by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office as Valerie Macon, 60, of Pomona.
“Officers attempted life saving measures, but unfortunately the victim succumbed to her wounds and was pronounced deceased at the scene,” Miller said. “One other female suffered minor injuries in the shooting.”
The suspect is believed to be the fatally wounded woman’s ex- boyfriend, Darnel Dwight Haley, 62, of Montclair, Miller said. Haley is known to drive a 2009 tan Kia Spectra, license number 8JNH311.
“The motive for the shooting is believed to be due to the recent break-up between the victim and the suspect,” Miller said. “The suspect is considered armed and dangerous.”
