A suspect in the killing of a 37-year-old man during what may have been a family dispute in Pomona was behind bars Monday.
William Pool, 28, was arrested Thursday in Victorville in connection with the July 25 shooting of Gregory Cummings, 37, in the 1500 block of West Grand Avenue, according to the Pomona Police Department.
Police had identified Pool as a suspect in the killing early on, but he remained on the lam until detectives tracked him last week to the Victorville area. According to police, officers spotted Pool standing outside a residence, and he was arrested without incident.
He was booked early the next morning and is being held on more than $3 million bail. According to court records, Pool was charged Aug. 2 with murder and negligent discharge of a firearm. He is scheduled to be arraigned Jan. 8 in Pomona.
Police did not disclose a motive for the killing. A Facebook page established in an effort to find Cummings’ killer indicates the gunman was a “family member” of the victim, who was described as a “loving father, husband, uncle and brother.”
