Man injured in Fullerton shooting believed to be gang-related

SEAN EMERY (ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER) | February 26, 2013

FULLERTON – A man was injured Tuesday night during a shooting in Fullerton that police believe to have been gang-related.

Police shortly after 8 p.m. responded to reports of shots fired on the east side of Fullerton.

The officers found a man suffering from a gunshot wound to the arm in an apartment complex east of Garnet Lane and North Placentia Avenue, Fullerton police Lt. John Siko said.

The man was taken to UCI Medical Center in Orange. His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Police say the victim has gang ties, leading them to believe that the shooting is gang-related.

“We think there was some type of fight in the street and that tipped off the shooting,” Siko said.

Witnesses reported seeing a Nissan Altima with tinted windows speeding out of the area after the shooting. A description of the shooter wasn’t available.
