The police investigators had been conducting surveillance on the man who was wanted on a no-bail warrant for violating his probation terms, according to the Garden Grove police.
The police officers found the suspect in the parking lot of the 7-Eleven at 1700 E. Dyer Road in Santa Ana, located east of the 55 Freeway just south of a Motel 6.
The police investigators made contact with the man while he was in his vehicle, in the parking lot. That is when the police officers shot him.
We do not yet know what happened before the shooting took place or why the police officers shot the man. However it is probable that he pulled a weapon on them or made a motion that looked like he was going to pull a weapon on them.
The police officers and paramedics who responded to the scene rendered first aid on the man. He ended up dying at a local hospital on Saturday morning, at 12:10 a.m.
The police officers were not injured.
As is usually the case the OCDA will investigate the officer-involved shooting and because it happened in Santa Ana the SAPD will look into it as well.
