POMONA (CNS) - Authorities today identified one of two men who were fatally shot in Pomona.

Officers were sent to the 200 block of Ridgeway Street about 12:11 a.m. Wednesday on a call of a person lying in the street, said Pomona Police Sgt. Iain Miller.

``Officers located a male adult victim, who appeared to have been struck by gunfire,'' Miller said in a statement. ``A second male adult victim was located several yards away and appeared to have also been struck by gunfire.''

Paramedics pronounced both men dead at the scene. Police believe the shootings may have occurred about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, Miller said.

``At this time, the suspect in the shootings is unknown and the motive for the killing is also unknown,'' Miller said.

On Thursday morning, the Los Angeles County coroner's office identified one of the men as 44-year-old James Yagle, whose city of residence was not known. Authorities withheld the name of the other man, who was in his 40s, pending notification of his relatives.

No arrests were reported, and no suspect information was available.

Anyone with information on the case was urged to call the Pomona Police Department at 909-620-2085. Anonymous tips can be called into Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477 or submitted online at
