A possible homicide suspect shot at officers during a traffic stop in Montclair on Monday, June 29, and was wounded when Pomona police returned fire.
California Highway Patrol officers observed a person resembling a homicide suspect driving along the 10 Freeway in Pomona, and requested assistance from the Pomona Police Department, PPD spokeswoman Aly Mejia said. Officers attempted to stop the motorist along Monte Vista Avenue near the freeway off-ramp at 3:37 p.m.

The driver proceeded to exit the vehicle and fire a gun at officers, Mejia said. Pomona police fired back, and the suspect was struck at least once by gunfire.
The wounded person appeared to be responsive as he was loaded onto a stretcher and placed into an ambulance, Mejia said. He was then rushed to a hospital.
No officers were injured during the incident, Mejia said. At least one bullet was found lodged into a Pomona Police Department vehicle.
The eastbound 10 Freeway off-ramp to Monte Vista was closed for the investigation.
Further details were not immediately available.
