Police: Calif. man fired about 50 shots in mall parking lot
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. — Police say a suspect who fired about 50 shots in the parking lot of a Southern California shopping mall was cooperative when officers took him into custody.
Witnesses say they ran, screaming and ducking for cover, when 42-year-old Marcos Gurrola fired into the air and onto the ground Saturday afternoon at Fashion Island in Newport Beach.
Police Lt. John Lewis says Gurrola offered no resistance when bicycle officers arrested him around 4:30 p.m. Police recovered a handgun and ammunition.
Gurrola has been charged with shooting at an inhabited dwelling. He is being held Sunday on $250,000 bail.
Officials say one person suffered a minor injury while running away, and was treated at the scene.
