Santa Ana Gang Shooting

Police say a 15-year-old boy was on life support at UCI Medical Center in Orange on Tuesday following a shooting in an alleyway last week, according to the O.C. Register.

The incident happened at about 6:40 p.m. Friday in the 400 block of North Laurel Street, which is in Santa Ana Councilman Roman Reyna’s Ward 5.  Police say the shooting was gang related.

Reyna lost this year’s Mayoral election after garnering under 35% of the vote.  During his campaign the Santa Ana Police Officers Association asked him to explain why a picture of him with two hard core gang bangers surfaced on Facebook.  Reyna blew them off.  Subsequently every law enforcement association in Orange County and even a statewide association refused to endorse him.

The Santa Ana Police Officers Association has asked Reyna to resign from the Santa Ana City Council’s Public Safety Committee.  That certainly makes sense – if Reyna is still palling around with dangerous cholos.

Reyna comes up for reelection in Ward 5 in two years, in the 2016 General Election.

  1. So are you going to start blaming each council member for the gang shootings in their respective wards and the mayor for the entire city? You are weird – good thing no one pays attention to you.

    1. Hate to break it to you Mike but the last post about this tragic shooting got almost 1,000 views. Turns our residents agree with me that having a Councilman with gang connections is not a good thing. I wonder if Reyna knows the shooter?

    2. You appear to be paying attention as your comment here demonstrates. If you are a supporter of pro-gang banger Reyna you must be one helluva dumb f**k. Thank goodness most voters are smarter than you and rewarded Mayor Pulido with another term.
