A 22-year-old Huntington Beach man was shot dead in Anaheim early Sunday, and hours later three more people suffered gunshot wounds 2 1/2 miles away, according to police.
Friends took the Surf City man to Anaheim Global Medical Center just before 3 a.m. Sunday, and he was then transferred to UC Irvine Medical Center in Orange, where he succumbed to his injuries, according to Anaheim Police Sgt. Daron Wyatt.
The Orange County coroner identified the victim as Luis Corrales.
Homicide detectives learned several people had been partying in a commercial area in the 1500 block of West Embassy Street when the shooting occurred, Wyatt said.
Not that the shootings are linked, but three people sitting on a couch were shot through the partially open door of a garage in the 1600 block of South Ivanhoe Street around 10:30 p.m. Sunday, Wyatt said.
Two 21-year-old men and a 17-year-old girl were wounded in their lower extremities and taken to a hospital for treatment, but they were expected to survive, Wyatt said.
