A 20-year-old Glendora resident was arrested in Azusa early Sunday morning after allegedly shooting a man multiple times, police said.

Jonathan Rojo was found during a search, hiding in a Azusa resident’s yard near the 100 block of West Tenth Street and a loaded gun was located nearby. His victim, only described as a man, was hospitalized after suffering non-life threatening gunshot wounds to an arm and his pelvic region.

A motive for the shooting is not known, police said.

Azusa Police officers reported hearing gunshots around 4:46 a.m. in the 100 block of West Tenth Street while tending to a disturbance call. An officer searching the area quickly saw a potential suspect fleeing, Azusa Police said in a written statement.

Azusa and Glendora Police officers established a containment to search for potential victims. Police found the male victim two blocks north of the scene, Azusa Police said.

While Los Angeles County Firefighters stabilized the victim and transported him to an area hospital, police found Rojo hiding in a resident’s yard south of the crime scene. Rojo matched the suspect’s description and was arrested without incident, Azusa Police said.

Rojo was booked on suspicion of attempted murder and is being held in lieu of $1 million bail. He is scheduled to appear in the West Covina Courthouse May 10.

Police ask that if anyone has information regarding the shooting, they should call (626) 812-3200.
