Another day, another drive-by shooting, as a man was injured in an attack the SAPD believes was gang-related, on Thursday night just after 10:15 p.m., according to the O.C. Register.
The drive-by shooting happened at the intersection of South Birch Street and West Chestnut Ave.
A male victim was shot once. He was walking in the area when he saw a vehicle that may have been gray in color. He heard the sound of gunshots and felt pain.
A witness said that he believed the gunshots came from inside the vehicle in question. The driver sped off afterwards and the car has not been located.
The victim was taken to a local hospital and he is expected to survive his injuries.
The police believe the shooting to be gang-related due to where the incident happened, which was just East of Santa Ana High School, in Santa Ana’s Ward 2, which is represented by Santa Ana Councilwoman Michele Martinez.
