POMONA, Calif. (AP) - Police have identified an 8-year-old boy who was shot to death as he was about to have dinner at a Pomona home.

Jonah Min Hwang of Pomona was shot in the head and pronounced dead at a hospital Monday evening.

Police have no motive for the attack, which occurred as the boy and his family were visiting friends.

Other children were present but weren’t hurt when someone opened fire from a car. At least three bullets hit the home.

No arrests have been made.

Police say the hosts are both teachers and nobody in the family has gang ties.

Detectives are trying to determine if the attack is connected to another shooting at the home last month. Nobody was home at the time.
