WEST COVINA — A West Covina man suspected of shooting and wounding another man last week turned himself in Tuesday, police said.
Ramon Rios, 34, was being held in lieu of $1 million bail at the West Covina Police Department’s jail, according to Los Angeles County sheriff’s booking records. He was booked on suspicion of attempted murder.
He showed up at the police station with his attorney about 1 p.m. and surrendered to investigators, who had been seeking him since the shooting, West Covina police Cpl. Rudy Lopez said.
The alleged attack took place just after noon Dec. 26 on Temple Avenue, just north of Amar Road, police said.
Rios is accused of getting into a fight with a 40-year-old West Covina man before pulling a gun and shooting him several times, Lopez said.
The wounded man was flown to a trauma center for treatment, police added.
Police said Rios fled the scene in a Cadillac Escalade, which was found abandoned near the scene of the shooting.
It was not clear Tuesday what the men were arguing about prior to the shooting.
According to booking records, Rios was due for arraignment Thursday in West Covina Superior Court.
