Santa Ana police are investigating a fatal shooting that took place Wednesday evening in a cemetery.
According to the SAPD, the incident occurred shortly after 6:30 p.m. as police were dispatched in response to a report of two victims down at Santa Ana Cemetery, 1919 East Santa Clara Ave. Upon arrival, officers found a man suffering from “multiple gunshot wounds.”

Orange County Fire Authority paramedics declared him dead at 6:46 p.m. A second victim was located, a man suffering a non-life threatening gunshot wound who was trying to leave the cemetery in a car.

Police say the motive for the attack is unknown, but there’s evidence to suggest “a gang motivation.” Anyone who was present at the gravesite, or victims or witnesses are encouraged to come forward, especially if they have photos or videos of the incident.
