ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – Officers in Anaheim have fatally shot a man suspected of shooting and wounding someone and firing at a police helicopter that was following him.
Sgt. Daron Wyatt said officers in the helicopter were checking on reports of gunshots in a neighborhood Saturday afternoon when they spotted a gunman standing over another man lying on the ground.
Wyatt said the gunman shot a round at the helicopter.
When officers on the ground confronted the man, they ordered him to drop his weapon. Wyatt said he refused, so officers shot him.
A firearm was recovered from the scene.
The Orange County Register reports the man lying on the ground was shot in the leg and was taken to the hospital in stable condition.
