A homicide investigation is underway in Santa Ana after a man was shot and killed Wednesday night, the Santa Ana Police Department said in a news release.

Officers responded to the 1700 block of West 9th Street at around 8:15 p.m. to find a man suffering from gunshot wounds to his upper torso, police said.

Paramedics transported the victim to a nearby hospital where he died during emergency surgery a few hours later, according to the news release.
