    • January 13, 2024

    A rare shooting in Old Towne Orange early Saturday morning left two men injured and a suspected gunman in police custody, according to the Orange Police Department.

    Officers patrolling the downtown area shortly after midnight heard gunshots near a bar in the 200 block of West Chapman Avenue, police said.

    Two men with gunshot wounds were found in a parking lot next to Paul’s Cocktails which is shared by other businesses. The men were taken to a hospital, but police said their wounds were not life-threatening.

    A suspected shooter — who police described only as a man — was found in the area with a handgun, police said. He was arrested and booked into Orange County jail.

    It isn’t clear what led to the shooting, or whether it occurred inside the 82-year-old bar, another business or in the parking lot.

    Police are asking anyone with information about the shooting to contact investigators at 714-744-7571.
