2 Sought in Santa Ana Shooting That Left 1 Man Dead, Another Wounded
Two unidentified males were being sought Saturday after a shooting in Santa Ana that left one man dead and another wounded, police said.
Officers responded about 7:11 p.m. Friday after the incident was reported in the 800 block of North Jackson Street (map), according to a news release.
Police found two men suffering from gunshot wounds at the location, in a residential area just west of the Willowick Golf Course. Orange County Fire Authority paramedics were called to the scene and transported the victims to UC Irvine Medical Center.
One of the men later died at the hospital, officials said. The other man’s condition was unknown. Their names were not immediately released.
A preliminary investigation indicated that the two victims were standing in front of a home when two males approached and “engaged them in conversation,” according to homicide detectives. Multiple shots were then fired at the victims, investigators said.
No description of the gunmen was available. It was unclear whether they fled on foot or in a vehicle.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Santa Ana Police Department at 714-245-8390 or Orange County Crime Stoppers at 1-855-TIPS-OCCS.
The Police Department offers “monetary rewards for information leading to the arrest of gang homicide or felony gang assault suspects,” the news release said.
