'H' word for May

Here's the homicide locations that I've collected for the month of May and a little of June. Hopefully you'll find the west LA County data (from the LA Times homicide map) a useful addition.

May homicides

Pomona saw two homicides in the month of May. Roberta Romero, a 24 year-old resident of West Covina, was found in the street at approximately 5:30 AM after being shot by to males, one from Covina and the other from Azusa. Both men have been arrested. Based on the limited reporting it appears that the victim was simply driven to this location before being shot. If anyone can add any further clarifications please do. The second homicide appears to be hit-and-run victim who was struck while a father was attempting to kidnap his child and the child's mother. The child and mother were found safe the next day, but I have no information regarding the status of the suspect.

While it doesn't seem to be eliciting a slew of comments. I'd like to at least recognize that I appreciate the work that you do on this map and that I'm here reading it.

Thanks. Showing Pomona in the context of the rest of LA County, should give us all something to think about.

I'm catching up on my blog reading after a week or so out of town. Thanks for the report, Ed.

What is an email address I can use to send a press release to you about goings-on in Pomona.

Tim, I'll let Ed decide whether or not to volunteer his own email address, but you can always send mail to the main M-M-M-My Pomona address: mmwwah-at-yahoo-dot-com.
