ORIGINAL POST, OCT. 19, 11:20 A.M.: Calls of yelling and a man down at the Old Stonegate condominium complex in the 4800 block of Westminster Avenue in Santa Ana early today led police to the discovery of a dead man in his 20s who had been shot multiple times.

The homicide is believed to be gang related, according to the Santa Ana Police Department, which like its Anaheim counterpart is investigating several this year.
