Two men were in custody Thursday following a shooting at a high-rise, luxury apartment building that apparently stemmed from a marijuana deal that turned into a robbery.
The two men, who have not been identified, are in the custody of Santa Ana police at a local trauma center, according to officials.
Gunfire erupted about 3:15 p.m. Wednesday at the Essex Skyline at MacArthur Place, near MacArthur Boulevard and the 55 Freeway.
Three men were found with gunshot wounds – an unidentified Black man with a gunshot wound to his upper torso who was found in the parking structure, an unidentified Hispanic man with gunshot wounds to his upper and lower body in the lobby, and a tenant on the 15th floor, a 29-year-old man who suffered a single grazing gunshot wound to the head and other blunt force trauma injuries, according to Santa Ana police. All three men were taken to local trauma centers.
