The condition of the two women was downgraded to critical this morning.

ORIGINAL POST, AUG. 13, 9:07 A.M.: A man in his 20s from Anaheim was killed and two women were injured late Tuesday when another man came up to a parked car they were sitting in and fired 10 to 12 shots at them, according to Santa Ana Police.

The shooting is believed to have happened on West East 12th Street just before 11:30 p.m., after which the red sedan the victims were in was driven by one of the women a short distance to North Main Street, which is where first responders found them.

The unidentified male passenger was killed, but the two women were taken to Western Medical Center in stable condition last night, according to Santa Ana Police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna, the department spokesman.

The condition of the women--a 21-year-old from Santa Ana and a 26-year-old from Anaheim--was downgraded to critical this morning.

There was no description available of the man who shot them; after the shooting, he ran to a white SUV that had been parked behind the sedan when it was on 12th Street and drove the SUV away from the scene, said Bertagna, who believed the gunman was the lone occupant.

The shooting was not believed to be gang-related.

UPDATE NO. 1, AUG. 13, 1:27 P.M.: The man who was pronounced dead at the scene of last night's triple shooting in Santa Ana has been identified as 23-year-old Aaron Jonathan Chavez. Police gave as his resident city "Santa Ana/Anaheim."

Police also clarified the shooting location as 1200 North Main Street, making that the crossing with EAST 12th Street, not West 12th. That's near a mortuary on one side of Main and the Orange County Birth and Death Registration office on the other side.

The 21-year-old woman who was in the driver's seat of the sedan and the 26-year-old woman in a rear passenger seat sustained "multiple gunshot wounds to the upper torso," according to a Santa Ana Police update that adds: "Investigation is ongoing and details will be released as they become available."

Way to use 'downtown' to attract hits to the article. Wrong information.

This is NOT in Downtown Santa Ana! This is a horrible thing that happened but don't pin it to downtown. Get over your dream of thinking downtown is going to stop it's forward momentum. It's not.

Boo!


It's about as Downtown as it gets. Unless you consider your trendy, gentrified Sycomore and Fourth the only Downtown, or is that what DTSA INC told you to say?

This is 5 blocks from the courthouse. What is considered "downtown" to you?

@dubyadawg Dubyadawg,you are a nit wit and a dumbass, bro.  I'm glad you've decreed what is the downtown.  You are a failed geographer, DUMB ASS.  Take your head out of your butt-hole for a moment so you can breathe.  Silly, trick.

When I rode into work yesterday morning I was wondering what all those vans were about, but Main Street was clear by 6:30 am.

@GhostOfKimPham @dubyadawg @meheecan-cris-doner BTW mother fucker, too soon and it will always be too soon to make fun of a young girls death.  We know what your hell is going to be when you die.  Oooops!  I think someone just put a curse on you.  They know who you are behind the username.  We saw it.  Thank God for computer addresses.

@dubyadawg Let's see, I love most ALL of Santa Ana, really loved it when our office was there, and yes, I did get beat up, as a sophomore in high school, about 60 miles away from downtown Santa Ana.

@dubyadawg @ElGuero Dumb-Dumb Dubya speaks again.  So if the City defined the downtown as extending to Cabrillo, I guess it would make it so according to your lame logic.  The shop owners and residents decide what is downtown and not everyone agrees where it begins and ends.  Go join the other sheep, you fool.
