Abel Joseph Orduna, a 21-year-old Santa Ana man, pleaded guilty and was immediately sentenced Wednesday to 10 years in prison for a violent robbery and attempted carjacking in Garden Grove, according to the O.C. Register.
Orduna pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted murder and one count each of robbery, possession of a short-barreled shotgun and attempted carjacking, all felonies.
Garden Grove police officers responded on Nov. 17, just before 2:30 p.m., to reports of shots fired at Harbor Blvd. and Buaro St., in Garden Grove. The responding police officers found two male victims suffering from gunshot wounds.
Both of the victims survived wounds to their necks and chests.
Orduna did not stop there. After the attack he brandished a sawed-off rifle while trying to carjack a victim at Harbor and Garden Grove Blvds. The police finally caught him nearby, recovered the weapon and stolen property, and arrested him.
