POMONA — An Inglewood man was behind bars Wednesday in connection with the December shooting death of another man in Pomona.

Homicide detectives and a SWAT team served a search warrant about 9:30 p.m. Monday in the 10000 block of Seventh Avenue and arrested 34-year-old Christopher Kearney, according to Pomona police Sgt. Brian Hagerty.

“Evidence related to the murder was also recovered,” according to Hagerty, who said Kearney was booked on suspicion of murder.

Officers responded about 11:20 p.m. Dec. 2 to multiple reports of a shooting in the 2400 block of Manville Street in Pomona and found 25-year-old Daniel Salcido in the middle of the street suffering from several gunshot wounds, Hagerty said.

Officers and paramedics were unable to revive him and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

No official motive for the killing has been released, though police in December said the suspect and the victim had argued prior to the shooting.

Kearney was being held in lieu of $2 million bail, according to sheriff’s inmate records.
