Santa Ana shooting

A 21-year-old unidentified local gang member was shot in the head and back on Sunday night at around 9:15 pm., while driving an SUV in the French Park neighborhood, at the 1200 block of North Lacy, just south of Washington, according to the O.C. Register.

The SAPD police who responded to a call of shots fired found the shooting victim inside a vehicle.

Police reported that the shooter’s vehicle, a gray sedan, pulled up next to the victim’s vehicle, yelled out a rival gang name and then shots were fired.

The victim was taken to a local hospital and is in stable condition. Police identified him as a local gangbanger.

This shooting happened just south of Davis Elementary School, in Santa Ana’s Ward 2, which is represented by Santa Ana Councilwoman Michele Martinez.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact the Orange County Crime Stoppers at 1-855-TIP-OCCS. Tips can be made anonymously and facts leading to the arrest and conviction of criminals can lead to a reward as large as $1,000.

  1. I will say this, in the eighteen months since Councilmember Benavides describes the steady, but sure uptick in violence in Santa Ana an “ANOMOLY” the city (and the councilman) has made great strides, Both Benavides and city manger Cavasos are involved in romantic relationships with City Personnel (the councilman is engaged to his OWN appointee???), A parking meter scandal is growing, a long effective gang prevention strategy (INJUNCTIONS) has been challenged, the appeal of “DTSA” has waned considerably.

    But, still the “ANOMOLIES” continue. Just a weird thing eh…

  2. Oh No!!! Not in exclusive French Park!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh wait, that is Logan gang territory….

  3. What is sad is that during a recent meeting with community leaders Chief Rojas said that he only has 100 officers working patrol. Well that leaves about another 180-190 officers..How about take some of those officers working cushy desk jobs like computer services or pot dispensary enforcement teams and put them back in patrol?

  4. The birch and pine shooting monday 530pm made me realize, these gangbangers dont look like gangbangers anymore i saw the “child” shooting he had basketball shorts on a t-shirt and long hair , he couldn’t have been more than 14 yrs. Old

  5. I was going to go give officers the description of the shooter but the officer that first responded was the same one that threw me on the ground and searched my car without my consent
