Two days, two officer involved shootings in Santa Ana. That might be a record even by our city’s standards!
SAPD police officers were called to the 400 block of Eastwood Ave. today at about 3:10 p.m. after a report of a home burglary at the 400 block of Eastwood Avenue, with multiple suspects, according to the O.C. Register.
The SAPD is not sure exactly what happened but we do know that a police officer eventually fired his gun and he must have been a pretty good shot as two suspects were shot dead. OCFA firefighters confirmed the deaths at the scene.
The police officer was not hurt. Police investigators do not know if the suspects shot at the police officers but one firearm was recovered at the scene.
The police did not reveal the names of the dead suspects, who were both men. Two additional suspects, who were also apparently involved in the burglary, were detained but their identities were also not revealed.
