A shooting and a pistol whipping at a house party in Yorba Linda left two people hospitalized and authorities searching for a gunman and one other person Thursday.
Officials responded to the 21000 block of Dunrobin Way about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday after someone reported a shooting, Orange County Fire Authority Battalion Chief Chuck Fedak said.
Two men attending a house party at the location got into an altercation, which led to one of the men being shot in the leg, Orange County Sheriff's Department Lt. Lagaret said.
As the man was being transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, a second wounded person was identified.
The second victim, who was also hospitalized, had been struck in the head with a gun, Lagaret said.
Russ Brenan, who lives a couple houses away from the shooting said he heard what he thought was a car backfiring.
“It’s obviously a little bit unsettling,” Brenan said. “I assume it’s an isolated case. It doesn’t change my feelings about the neighborhood.”
Authorities are searching for the gunman and a possible driver involved in the incident.
