LOS ANGELES - Six counts of attempted murder and assault with a firearm on a peace officer were filed against a man wanted in connection with gang-related shootings and possibly killings in Azusa.
Jorge Galvez, 20, had the above charges filed against him Tuesday. A judge ordered him to be held in lieu of $6.2 million bail, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
Pomona Police SWAT officers were assisting Azusa detectives in serving a gang search warrant at a home in the 5500 block of South Lark Ellen Avenue Thursday, May 24 in the unincorporated area near Azusa. Galvez is accused of shooting at SWAT officers as they approached the home.
Pomona SWAT officers returned fire, Pomona Police said.
No one was hit by gunfire.
Galvez surrendered without further incident.
Azusa Police Detectives were serving eight search warrants at the home, in an ongoing investigation into multiple gang-related shootings.
Azusa has been rocked by the shootings, which left a 14-year-old boy and 21-year-old man dead in two incidents. Another man was injured in the leg by gunfire in the same area where Galvez was arrested.
The search warrants were a multiagency effort between Azusa Police, Pomona Police, Covina Police, Baldwin Park Police, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and U.S. Marshals.
Galvez is scheduled to appear in court June 6.
