A 22-year-old man was fatally shot by an Anaheim Police officer early Tuesday at a park, police said.

The shooting in Sage Park, 1313 W. Lido Place, took place about 12:40 a.m., but police released no details about what led up to the gunfire. The suspect was identified by the Orange County Sheriff-Coroner’s Office as Gustavo Najera of Anaheim.

Anaheim police Sgt. Daron Wyatt said the officer was wearing a camera, and that footage will be sent to prosecutors to review. He said he didn’t know if a weapon was recovered at the scene.

“The investigation is still ongoing and the District Attorney’s office will be taking the lead in this investigation,” Wyatt said.

The name of the suspect, who died at a hospital, was withheld pending family notification.
