Three California shootings may be tied to gang violence

California authorities are investigating a series of deadly shootings that took place in Santa Ana between Dec. 1 and Dec. 3. Police believe the spate of violence may have been committed by area gang members.

The first shooting took place on Friday, Dec. 1, and resulted in a fatality. According to police, a 36-year-old male died after he was hit in the lower torso. Four suspects, who all allegedly have gang ties, were taken into custody.

The second shooting took place on the 900 block of South Standard Avenue at around 2:17 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 3. First responders discovered a male victim with a bullet wound to the lower area of his body. He later died as a result of his injuries. Police found the third shooting victim at around 11:45 a.m. on Dec. 3 on the 100 block of South Raitt Street. The male victim was found with a gunshot wound in his upper torso. He was transported to a local hospital for treatment of injuries that are not life-threatening. No arrests have been made in connection to any of the cases, but police believe they were committed by gang members.

Individuals facing murder charges or charges for other violent crimes may be able to help their situations by retaining legal counsel. An attorney could carefully scrutinize all the evidence in the case and use that knowledge to obtain the most favorable outcome possible. In some cases, an attorney could convince the court to reduce or dismiss the charges, avoiding a trial. In other circumstances, legal counsel could work to build a successful defense to fight the allegations in court. This could lead to an acquittal.
