On the same shift Wednesday, a man was shot near the intersection of Orange and Gaffey boulevards, officials said, after he approached a man who was allegedly robbing a store on the block.

The man, 25, was sitting in a Honda Civic at the intersection of Gaffey and Huntington boulevards when he noticed a man outside a store walking a dog about 5:30 p.m., according to The Orange County Register. There was no evidence of robbery or any other criminal activity.

When the man approached the victim in a Honda Civic, the victim drew his gun and fired several shots, officials said. The man died at the scene.

Around 3:35 a.m. Thursday, the same man went into a Taco Cabana on Gaffey Street and attacked a man with a baseball bat, prompting the man to shoot him in the back, authorities said.

There was no criminal activity and the man was taken to a hospital with serious injuries.

Sgt. Paul Hertel of the Santa Ana Police Department said there were “multiple” victims that day, adding that the victims were still being questioned by detectives and were considered witnesses in the case.

An autopsy has been performed, and the cause of death was ruled a homicide.

The victim was hospitalized and police did not immediately release his name.

The victim’s name has not been released.

The shootings are the first in Orange County in connection with the fatal shooting of two people in the county in two months.
