Two men were found dead at the Anaheim GardenWalk near Disneyland early Sunday morning following reports of a large fight inside a parking structure.
Officers just before 2:30 a.m. responded to reports of a shooting at the GardenWalk parking structure, Anaheim police Sgt. Jon McClintock said. As the officers were heading to the area, additional callers reported that someone had been run over outside the structure by a fleeing vehicle, the sergeant added.
One man — identified only as a male in his 30s — was found in the structure with at least one gunshot wound and was pronounced dead at the scene, McClintock said.
A second victim — described as a man in his 20s or 30s — was found lying injured on the ground outside the structure and was taken to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, McClintock said. The cause of his death has not yet been determined.
According to the preliminary investigation, there may have been a large fight inside the structure prior to the deaths, McClintock said. It wasn’t immediately clear what could have started the fight, or where the participants were prior to the apparent confrontation in the parking structure.
No information on potential suspects was immediately released. Authorities are also not releasing the names of the two men who were found dead pending notification of their next of kin.
Homicide investigators are seeking any witnesses, and are asking anyone with information to contact the Anaheim Police Department at 714-765-1900 or anonymous tips can be reported to Orange County Crime Stoppers at 855-TIP-OCCS.
