Recommended Posts

Dozens of $20 bills lay like confetti on a Santa Ana street Friday after a 55-year-old man was killed during a robbery just hours after winning several thousand dollars at a casino in Hawaiian Gardens.

Santa Ana police were alerted to the South Andres Place killing about 5:30 a.m. by a woman screaming for help.

Arriving officers discovered a man laying in the street, having apparently been run over by an assailant.

Santa Ana Police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said the victim had won several thousand dollars early Friday at the casino.

His killer followed him in another vehicle from the gambling establishment to Santa Ana, where he cut him off, according to Bertagna.

Bertagna said the suspect and victim had an altercation on the street, and the 55-year-old man fled on foot only to be hit by the killer?s vehicle.

The woman had accompanied the victim to the casino but was apparently unhurt in the attack.

At the scene Friday, officers recovered a knife and picked up dozens of $20 bills that had fallen onto the pavement.
