From Times Staff and Wire Reports

An 18-year-old man died over the weekend after being shot in the head, apparently on a Santa Ana street.

Josh Lopez, 18, was declared dead at Western Medical Center-Santa Ana about 4 p.m. Saturday, just over 14 hours after police found him with a single gunshot wound to the head in the 1200 block of S. Standard Avenue, said Sgt. Terry Zlateff, a spokesman for the Santa Ana Police Department.

The shooting is being investigated by the department’s gang detail, Zlateff said.
