LA HABRA A 16-year-old boy was wounded in a police shooting Monday morning in La Habra, according to authorities.
Around 9:35 a.m. officers were dispatched to the 200 block of South Monte Vista Street after being notified by a woman that her son had armed himself with a gun following a family dispute, La Habra police Sgt. Jose Rocha said.
“The caller advised that the suspect left on foot, armed with the firearm and stated that he wanted to shoot something and be on the news,” he said.
However, when police arrived, the teen had already left the area. Police found him in the 300 block of South Walnut Street where an officer shot the teen, Rocha said.
The teen fled and was later located at Knudson Street and 3rd Avenue. A handgun was recovered, Rocha said.
He was transported by ambulance to UCI Medical Center where his condition was unknown. He is in custody on suspicion of attempted homicide, criminal threats, and brandishing a firearm.
No officers were injured.
A motive for the shooting has not been released, and the incident remains under investigation.
FOUNTAIN VALLEY Two people were arrested Wednesday in connection with thefts from lockers at a Fountain Valley gym, police said.
Tiffany Cauyong, 18, and Christopher Blackburn ,19, both of Daly City were booked into the Orange County Jail on suspicion of burglary, grand theft, and fraud, Fountain Valley police Sgt. Tony Luce said in a statement.
Around 10:40 a.m. Wednesday, police were notified that several lockers had been broken into at 24 Hour Fitness, 17200 Brookhurst St., Luce said.
Cauyong and Blackburn are suspected of stealing car keys, credit cards and cellphones, Luce said. Police believe the pair used the keys to unlock vehicles in the gym parking lot to take additional items.
Cauyong and Blackburn were arrested as they left Westminster Mall where police say they used stolen credit cards to make fraudulent purchases.

Another Angel in the Sky will be watching over the city.
The Anaheim Police Department received City Council approval earlier this month for the $538,750 purchase of a 2006 Airbus AS350 B2 helicopter.
Anaheim already has two of that helicopter model in its fleet. Collectively known as Angel in the Sky, the helicopters are based at the Fullerton Municipal Airport and operated by the department’s Air Support Division Patrol.
Along with the half a million dollar price tag, the city has allocated $260,000 for equipping the helicopter with radios, monitors, a public address system and other hardware.
The money for the helicopter will come from a fund developers in the Platinum Triangle pay into as part of an agreement with the city that allows them to build inside the fast-rising community around Angel Stadium and the Honda Center.
The Airbus helicopters cruise the sky at 90 mph and have a max speed of 140 mph – they can travel from west Anaheim to Anaheim Hills in six minutes, police said.
In 2015, the helicopters assisted in 369 arrests and were involved in 38 pursuits, police spokesman Sgt. Daron Wyatt said. They also helped locate 19 suspects in hiding.
“Adding the third helicopter to our fleet will increase the lifespan of the helicopters and will increase the amount of time in between scheduled maintenance,” Wyatt said. “Also since it is the exact same model of our other two helicopters, it will provide consistency in training and operation, not only with the pilots but also with our aircraft mechanics.”
The helicopter the department is purchasing has 3,000 hours of flight time and has been well-maintained by a fellow law enforcement agency, according to city staff. Wyatt said the retail value is $3 million.
