ORIGINAL POST, MARCH 22, 1:02 P.M.: The pop of gunfire just after midnight this morning led to 9-1-1 calls from neighbors and a passing police officer who heard it to roll up to an apartment complex near South Grand and West Lincoln avenues in Anaheim. Police found a man in his 30s nursing at least one gunshot wound on the walkway leading into the apartments, and shortly after he arrived at a local hospital he was the Anaheim's second murder victim of the week.
At this hour, police do not know who shot the man, what led to the shooting or whether it was gang related.
That's where you come in. If you know anything that can help homicide investigators, call 714.765.1900.
