Suspect arrested in shooting outside Santa Ana store

Police arrested a suspect in Buena Park on Monday in connection to a shooting outside a 99 Cents Only store in Santa Ana.

Around 9:45 p.m. on Sunday, officers from the Santa Ana Police Department responded to St. Joseph Hospital in Orange, where a man who had been shot in the forearm entered the emergency room. The man told police he was inside his friend’s car next to the discount store at 1514 North Main Street when he heard gunshots and realized he had been struck by gunfire, Officer Natalie Garcia said.

A witness told police the male suspect drove away in a white Ford Explorer. It was unclear Monday if the shooter was targeting the victim or someone else.

On Monday, the Buena Park Police Department located the suspect’s vehicle and Santa Ana police officers conducted a traffic stop as it was leaving the area. The suspect, identified as 38-year-old Johnell Marquise Jackson, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and other firearm-related charges, Garcia said.
