Homicide detectives in Santa Ana are investigating the early Friday morning shooting death of a man who was discovered lying on the ground in a residential neighborhood.
Police said the man's identity is still not known.
Someone called police about 1:10 a.m. Friday to report that a person was lying on the ground in the 1400 block of South Standard Street, according to a Santa Ana police news release.
The officers who responded to the scene saw that the man had been shot and alerted paramedics, who pronounced him dead at the scene, said Cpl. Anthony Bertagna.
Coroner’s investigators and detectives are working to try and identify the man, who appears to be in his early 20s, Bertagna said. No arrests have been made and there are no suspects as of yet, he said.
“The first goal here is get him identified,” Bertagna said.
Homicide detectives have asked that anyone with information call their office at (714) 245-8390 or Orange County Crime Stoppers at (855) TIP-OCCS.
