The 'H' map for Jan. and Feb.

Jan. and Feb. Homicide map

Pomona saw three homicides in the month of February. The most recent occurred at the Motel 6 on Garey Ave., near the 60 Freeway. Three suspects were arrested within days of the murder.

Claremont experienced their first murder since 2006. The Claremont PD issued a press release shortly after the homeowner's body was discovered, but now the PD's lips are shut tight. No arrests have been reported.

Montclair experienced a double-homicide resulting from an apparent domestic dispute.

Upland's only homicide was a shooting fatality in January. The reports from the Daily Bulletin suggested the victim was a gang member.

January in Rancho saw a SB County Sheriff shoot a 36 year old from Diamond Bar following a police chase. And in February, a 13 year old boy riding his bike was run down by an alleged drunk driver. The death of the 13 year old follows a fatal hit-and-run bike accident in October which took the life of a 19 year, and two non fatal bike accidents in January. Hmmm, can I suggest riding around Bonelli park.

Homicide ranking of cities by population: Montclair, Claremont, Pomona, Upland, Rancho Cucamonga, Ontario. It pays to be big..........for the first two months.
