A 17-year-old boy was the victim of a drive-by shooting at a Santa Ana bus stop on Friday night, according to the O.C. Register.

The shooting happened at a bus stop on South Fairview Street, just north of West McFadden Ave., at 8:33 p.m. The teen was sitting at the bus stop when he was struck by a bullet fired from a passing vehicle. 

While four to five shots were heard the boy was struck only once, in the upper body, according to the SAPD. He has undergone surgery and was in stable condition as of last night.

As is usually the case in Santa Ana the victim was not cooperating with police investigators.

No suspects have been identified or found. Most likely this will go down as just another random act of gang violence in our city.

The shooting resulted in the closure of South Fairview and West McFadden while the police investigated the incident.

This crime occurred in Santa Ana’s Ward 6, which is represented by Councilman Sal Tinajero.
