    More than 50 shots fired at Fashion Island mall; suspect held


    Marcos Gurrola, 42, of Garden Grove is suspected of firing a handgun in the mall parking lot in Newport Beach. No one was hit.

    December 15, 2012, 9:29 p.m.

    A gunman at Fashion Island in Newport Beach apparently fired more than 50 rounds in a parking lot at the busy shopping mall Saturday before he was apprehended by police, authorities said.


    Marcos Gurrola, 42, of Garden Grove, was arrested in the parking lot near the Macy's department store shortly after allegedly firing the shots about 4:30 p.m., said Kathy Lowe, a spokeswoman for the Newport Beach Police Department. Officers on bike patrol apprehended Gurrola as he was standing by a white Honda.

    Police searched the mall but did not find anyone who had been injured by the shots, which were apparently fired either into the air or at the ground.

    More than 50 rounds from a handgun were recovered at the scene, said Deputy Chief David McGill. A handgun was also recovered at the scene, but police did not reveal any more details about the weapon. The state's landmark assault-weapons law, which went into effect in 2000, banned the use of handgun magazines with more than 19 bullets.

    The mall was crowded with holiday shoppers at the time of the shooting. Some stores were immediately locked down, and many shoppers posted messages on Facebook and Twitter saying they were locked inside.

    I was just getting off on Ball Rd. from the 57 just after the shooting on my way to Disneyland. I knew I saw alot of heliocopters and just thought that guards were all up since what had happened the day before.

    People need to chill out...

    Ta Da!
