Francisco Barboza, OC Homicide No. 22: Shot Near Crosswalk
Francisco Barboza was standing at the crosswalk on the southeast corner of West Warner Avenue and South Fairview Street in Santa Ana around 9 p.m. Sunday when a man walking south in the Fairview crosswalk approached.
Instead of tipping a cap or a polite "hello," the man pulled a gun and shot Barboza once in the chest.
The gunman turned around and ran north on Fairview. Barboza started to run south on Fairview before collapsing.
The 33-year-old Santa Ana resident was later pronounced dead at the scene.
Police have no suspects, so they are reaching out to the public for help in identifying the shooter. Call 714.245.8648 if you know anything.
