POMONA — Two 13-year-old boys were arrested for allegedly shooting another teen outside an elementary school Thursday.
The boys, whose names were not released because of their age, were identified and arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon about six hours after a 15-year-old Pomona boy was shot in a park near Philadelphia Elementary School in the 600 block of E. Philadelphia Street.
One of the arrested teens was identified as the shooter, according to a Pomona police news release. A third person has been identified but not yet been arrested.
The three suspects are documented gang members or associates of gang members, police said.
About 3 p.m. Thursday, police found the 15-year-old boy on the sidewalk east of the school with a gunshot wound to his lower body, according to a written statement from police.
The school was placed on lock down for about 15 to 20 minutes following the shooting.
