Roosevelt Elementary School

Two men, both 18, were shot in the upper torso, on Friday in Santa Ana, at around 12:45 p.m. in the 700 block of East Chestnut Avenue, according to the O.C. Register. The men were transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries, and they are expected to survive, Santa Ana police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said.

The shooting happened on the north side of the campus of Roosevelt Elementary School.  It is highly disturbing that the incident occurred at mid-day.  The area in question is in Councilwoman Michele Martinez’ Ward 2.  She has previously admitted to selling drugs when she was a teenager and the local law enforcement associations opposed her reelection campaign this year.

The shooter was described as a Hispanic young man, 15 to 18 years old, standing about 5-feet-9 with a thin build. He was seen fleeing west on a BMX bicycle west East Chestnut Avenue and heading toward Main Street.

If you have any information about this crime you can call the Orange County Crime Stoppers anonymously at 855-TIPS-OCCS.

      1. Remember that every single law enforcement association in Orange County endorsed Pulido. They all refused to endorse Martinez and in fact sent out quite a bit of mail against her campaign.

    1. Touche

      Kinda like TWO YOUNG CHILDREN ANALLY RAPED at Mater Dei High School. Parents ignore it and continue to send money to child rapists.

      What a big GANGBANG at Eddie West Field. Featuring Fr. Hollywood, Steve “SUCK MY COCK SON” Sallot. That would be representative right……


  1. Why does it matter what Ward this happened in? I feel like this “news” site is just a device for spewing political rhetoric.

    1. Maybe if Martinez spent a little more time representing her ward, and a little less looking for a job……..

      Michele, lost whatever chance she had, when she ate the kitchen table back in 2009. Glutton.

    2. I was thinking the same thing doesn’t matter who’s ward this happened in. Two kids go shot is the story. The Editor trying to push there political agenda with a tragedy is discussing.

        1. How is it a Councils fault that some kids got shot? People need to spend more time taking care of there families and raising there kids right to ensure tragedies like this don’t happen instead of pointing the blame at someone and waiting for other people to change the community. That’s whats wrong with this generation, nobody accepts responsibility for things happening around them, just looking for excuses. FYI No politician is going to solve your problems. It starts with each one of us Maning up and doing whats right and being good role models to the next generation of kids

          1. Diego, I would say it starts with men and women being good parents Mothers and Fathers. Oop’s Councilmember Benavides already screwed the pooch (and a half dozen dental assistants) on that one!
