SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - Santa Ana police have shot and killed two burglary suspects, a day after a gun battle wounded an officer and a gang member.

Cpl. Anthony Bertagna says the shooting occurred around 3:30 p.m. Thursday after two officers answered a report of a burglary in progress.

He says the officers were confronted by some suspects and a shooting occurred. Both suspects died at the scene. Bertagna says at least one had a gun, which was found at the scene.

But there’s no immediate word on whether they fired at the officers, who weren’t hurt.

On Wednesday, a 30-year-old gang member was wounded and a police officer grazed in a gun battle. Police say the gunman fired at a gang enforcement detective, who returned fire.

The suspect was hospitalized.
