Two teenagers were shot to death and a man was wounded in Pomona early Saturday morning, police said.

The shooting occurred about 1:30 a.m. in an alley in the 300 block of Orchid Lane, said Pomona police Lt. Ron McDonald. A 16-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene and a 13-year-old boy died after being taken to a hospital.

McDonald said a third shooting victim, an adult male, was found wounded close to a car in the alley. He was transported to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center. His condition was unclear.

None of the victims were immediately identified.

Details about the shooting were scarce and police had not settled on a motive for the crime, McDonald said. No arrests have been made and no other information was available about possible suspects.
