A man on a bicycle was shot and killed in Santa Ana, and police say the victim was a known gang member.

Police received 911 calls about some sort of disturbance at a condominium complex in the 4800 block of Westminster Avenue between La Bonita Avenue and Rosita Place around midnight Friday. When officers arrived, they found a man in his late 20s with at least one gunshot wound. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators believe the victim was shot in the area of La Bonita Avenue and 17th Street. Authorities believe the victim tried to get away after the shooting, abandoning his bicycle and running to the condominium complex, where police found him.

The motive for the shooting remains unclear. No arrests have been made.
