    Breaking news,A search is underway Thursday evening for a man who shot and killed another driver near a Pomona high school.


    The incident Thursday unfolded about 3:45 p.m. near Garey Senior High
    School and spurred temporary lock downs at three schools in the area.


    “I think we probably heard about two or three shots,” Noe Elenes, a
    student at Garey High School, said. “Most of the people probably didn’t
    hear it, but the ones that did hear it, they were just shocked.”


    According to the Pomona Unified School District, the incident was
    unrelated to the schools in the area. The lock downs were subsequently
    lifted.


    Police said the driver passed away at the hospital. Family members on scene described him as a 21-year-old father.


    “I’m just going crazy. I don’t know what to think. I don’t know
    anything. He has two kids. I have kids of my own. It’s crazy,” Diana
    Clausto, the victim’s niece, said.


    “It’s just unbelievable. You know, we’re left speechless,” Melissa Clausto, another niece of the victim’s, said.


    Pomona officers believe there were many scenes. On Lexington and
    Park, officers said the victim got into a shootout with the driver of a
    stolen car.


    They believe the suspect took off and abandoned the stolen car riddled with bullet holes a few blocks away.


    Police believe the suspect went to Montclair Hospital after the
    shooting for treatment of an injury to his face. Authorities believe he
    went into the hospital seeking treatment, but did not stay for long
    after staff tipped off police.


    Near the hospital, officers believe the suspect carjacked a vehicle
    by holding the driver at knife-point. Police are looking through
    hospital security video and interviewing witnesses. The suspect is
    outstanding.


    The victim’s family says he lost his brother to gang violence a
    couple of years ago. Police suspect that Thursday’s incident was
    gang-related, but have not confirmed that it in fact was.


    “He was coming from seeing his brother at the cemetery right here on
    Lexington. He had just went to go buy him flowers and he was coming home
    already. He was gonna go home already,” Clausto said.
