All Classes Canceled at Santa Ana College After Shooting

A man was shot to death Monday and his vehicle crashed onto the Santa Ana College campus, authorities said.

The school sent an alert to students saying the classes would be canceled Monday as police continued to investigate the shooting.

Students and staff were asked not to go to the campus.

It happened at 1 a.m. at Bristol Street and Washington Avenue, Santa Ana police Sgt. J. Lopez said.

After the shooting, the man's vehicle went over a curb and onto a border wall at the Santa Ana College parking lot, Santa Ana police Corporal Anthony Bertagna said.

The victim died at the scene of the crash.

Santa Ana College campus police were helping Santa Ana police review surveillance video to see what happened.

"We're trying to figure out if the accident led to the shooting or the shooting led to the accident," Bertagna said.

Bristol Street was closed in both directions from 17th Street to Washington Avenue for the homicide investigation, he said. The college is closed as a result until the crime scene is cleared.
