Orange police released video of a person sought in a shooting on Jan. 29, 2018.

The incident began when the victim went outside his home in the 2500 block of North Skytop Court about 4 a.m. and noticed someone stealing items from his vehicle, the Orange Police Department stated in a news release.

He then went after the thief, who ran about two blocks away to the area of Portico Terrace and Hawksfield Way. There, the thief pulled out a gun and shot the victim once in the upper body, the Police Department stated.

The resident contacted a neighbor who called 911, but the thief got away.

Police released surveillance video showing the suspect, who appeared to wear a hoodie and have a blond ponytail. Police have not released any description of the shooter, but described the person as an "unknown male."

An emergency crew came and transported the victim to a hospital, where he was in stable condition, according to the Police Department.

Residents in the area described the man as a father of a three young children, and said they're hoping he'll make a full recovery.

“They’re great neighbors and just victims of a random situation, I think," one woman told KTLA.

Anyone with information was asked to call police at 714-744-7571.
