The victim was walking nearby on Civic Center Drive when multiple shots were fired from a passing vehicle. The SAPD suspects the shooting was possibly a gang-related attack.
The teen’s injuries do not appear to be life-threatening. The SAPD did not release the victim’s name nor were any suspects named.
The shooting happened East of the Santa Ana Civic Center, about a mile away from the SAPD headquarters, a block north of Garfield Elementary School., in Santa Ana’s Ward 2, which is represented by Council Member Michele Martinez.
