A man was shot to death in Santa Ana Tuesday, his body found on a street near Century High School, and police searched for his killer.

Police received a call of shots fired about 2 a.m. and found a victim in the 1400 block of Wilshire Avenue, according to Cpl. Anthony Bertagna with the Santa Ana Police Department. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

In addition to the street where the victim was located, police also conducted an investigation at a location at Edinger Avenue and Grand Street, Bertagna said.

ABC7 reported police believe the victim was approached by two men at a gas station on Edinger Avenue and forced into his car. The man was later shot and his body was found on Wilshire Avenue, ABC7 said.

Grand Street is closed between McFadden and Edinger avenues until further notice, police said.

It is unclear if the investigation will affect operations at Century High School, which began its school year Monday.
