    Security guard shot in Laguna Hills
    • October 18, 2023

    A security guard was shot Tuesday while sitting in his patrol car in a Laguna Hills neighborhood.

    Orange County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched about 11 a.m. to Saddle Rock Place and Bridlewood Drive regarding the shooting, sheriff’s Sgt. Mike Woodroof said.

    Deputies found a man, who was a security guard, in a car. The man was taken to a hospital, said Woodroof, who did not have details on how seriously the guard was injured.

    A “person of interest” was detained at the scene, Woodroof told a video journalist for ONSCENE.TV.

    Woodroof said that the shooting appears to be an isolated incident and there is no threat to the community.

    The victim was a security guard but it was unknown whether he worked in the area, the sergeant said. A witness to the shooting dialed 911, Woodroof said.
