A person was fatally shot at Santa Ana Cemetery and the shooter was at large Thursday morning.
The shooting occurred about 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the cemetery at 1919 E. Santa Clara Ave., the Santa Ana Police Department said.
A large group of people was in the cemetery grounds when gunfire erupted, but it was unclear if they were together visiting the same site, Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said.
“I was getting ready to start a barbecue, heard some gunshots,” Gari Aldridge, who lives near the cemetery, told reporters. “Some gentlemen here in the cemetery, five or six males. One guy started shooting, ended up shooting one man. (I) saw him going to the ground.”
A second shooting victim was taken to a hospital in unknown condition.
A detailed description of the suspect was not immediately available.
