Pomona man killed in Montclair shooting

Saturday, November 16, 2013

A Pomona man was fatally shot in the Montclair area Friday afternoon. Authorities are now asking for the public's help in finding the gunman.

Deputies from the Fontana sheriff's station responded to the 11300 block of Kingston Court after receiving reports of shots heard and a male down around 4:15 p.m. When they arrived, deputies found 20-year-old Robert Camacho suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. Camacho was transported to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Investigators with the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department say they have determined that the victim and others were standing near a playground at an area park when the gunman approached and fired at them. It's not known if the victim was the intended target. Officials say there were children on the playground when the shots were fired.

No information about the suspect has been released.

Anyone with information about this case was asked to contact Det. Bryan Zierdt or Sgt. Trevis Newport at (909) 387-3589. People wishing to remain anonymous were asked to call the We-Tip hotline at (800) 78-CRIME.
