Post  dstrm300 on Sat Mar 16, 2013 4:44 pm

A man suffered a critical gunshot wound this morning near downtown Pomona.

A caller reported a shooting at 12:50 a.m. near the corner of Eleanor and Seventh streets, said Pomona police Lt. Eddie Vazquez.

Officers arrived and found a man with a bullet wound to his upper torso. The victim said he was walking on the street when the shooters approached him. Police didn't specify whether the attackers were on foot or in a vehicle.

Paramedics flew the victim, whose name wasn't released, to an area hospital for treatment. He was listed in critical condition.

The incident is the latest in a spike in violence in the city during the last week.

Four men between 18 and 24-years-old have been killed and another man was wounded in separate shootings between March 7 and Tuesday. Police have increased patrols in response to the incidents.

POMONA -- Police have increased patrols and other efforts in Pomona in response to four fatal shootings in six days, authorities announced Wednesday.

Four men between the ages of 18 and 24 have died and another was wounded in the four separate shootings, which took place March 7, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, Pomona police officials said.

"The department's homicide detectives and Gang Suppression Unit are diligently investigating the incidents and will continue to do so until all persons responsible are brought to justice," Pomona police Capt. Michael Olivieri said in a written statement.

"The department has begun to deploy additional officers on overtime to supplement the investigative and field crime suppression units," the captain added.

Preliminary investigation indicated the shootings were not directly related, Olivieri said, however, "none of the incidents are considered a random act of violence."

No arrests were made, and Pomona police released no suspect descriptions in any of the slayings.

The most recent killing took place about 8:22 p.m. Tuesday at an apartment complex in the 1100 block of Murchison Street, according to Pomona police Sgt. Hector Rodriguez. Officers responded to reports of a shooting and discovered 18-year-old Michael Castillo of Pomona lying on the ground, mortally wounded. He was pronounced dead a short time later.

block of North Gordon Avenue, Pomona police Sgt. Steve Congalton said.

Officers were checking on a report of "shots fired" just after 9:30 p.m. when they found Cotinola suffering from gunshot wounds to his "mid-torso," Congalton said. He was rushed to a hospital and treated along the way, but died from his injuries.

About 24 hours earlier, another man -- 19-year-old Joseph Cook -- was shot and killed in the driveway of a home in the 2200 block of Carlton Avenue, Pomona police officials said. His city of residence was not available.

Cook was pronounced dead at the scene of the 9:32 p.m. shooting, Congalton said, while a second shooting victim, a 19-year-old man, was flown by helicopter to a hospital for treatment of injuries determined not to be life-threatening.

The recent spate of killings began March 7, with the fatal drive-by shooting of 24-year-old Kelly Buruan of Los Angeles as he walked with a child and two strollers about 2:20 p.m. in the 900 block of West 9th Street, Pomona police and Los Angeles County Department of Coroner's officials said.
