Another gang shooting in Santa Ana

This time the O.C. Register admitted that the latest shooting in Santa Ana is indeed gang related. Here is their article to that effect:

SANTA ANA – A 15-year-old boy was shot in the head and a 17-year-old boy is in critical condition after being shot in the chest during a drive-by shooting Thursday night, authorities said.

The teenagers were standing in the 1800 block of S. Greenville Street about 6:20 p.m. when a car pulled up next to them, Santa Ana police Cmdr. Joe Kahapea said. Shots rang out.

The 17-year-old was hit once in the chest. A bullet grazed the 15-year-old’s head.

The car drove off, leaving the wounded boys behind. Investigators believe the shooting was gang-related but do not have a vehicle or suspect description, Kahapea said.

The victims were taken to UCI Medical Center in Orange, where the 17-year-old remains in critical condition.
