According to police, Valencia shot at a red SUV from an apartment complex along Willits Street at about 5 p.m. on Dec. 8. Security video released by Santa Ana police show a gunman aiming over the top of a block wall at a red SUV driving northbound on the street, then rushing to get into a parked car with a companion. Investigators say the shooting was gang-related.
