ANAHEIM (AP) — A parolee who was shot by an Anaheim police officer has been arrested for investigation of stealing mail.
Sgt. Bob Dunn says 27-year-old Travis Mock, who is hospitalized under guard with a gunshot wound, was arrested Friday for investigation of theft of U.S. mail and possession of stolen property. The Orange County Register says the Santa Ana man has also been placed on a parole hold.
Investigators say the on-duty officer encountered the unarmed Mock in the residential area near Anaheim Hills early Thursday. Details about the shooting haven’t been released.
Dunn said his department was helping the Orange County district attorney’s office investigate the circumstances that led to the shooting.
