Later this afternoon, at 4:45 p.m., officers responded to a call of shots fired at 1314 N. McLean. One shell casing was located on the corner of Morningside/Mclean.
According to a witness, a male exited a white SUV and fired one shot east on Morningside. It is unknown at this time what the intended target was. The SUV fled south on McLean. At this time no additional suspect information was available.
Both of these shootings occurred in Santa Ana’s Ward 3, which is represented by Council Member Angie Amezcua, who is stepping down from her seat this year. There are several candidates running for Ward 3. The Santa Ana Police Officers Association has endorsed only one of these candidates – former City Councilman and State Legislator Jose Solorio.
