SANTA ANA, California — A reputed Orange County gang member who was shot and wounded by Santa Ana police has been charged with being a felon in possession of a gun.
Orange County prosecutors say 24-year-old Armando Antunez (ann-TOON'-yez) was also charged Tuesday with other gun-related crimes.
He's already on probation for having a concealed weapon and faces up to 19 years in state prison if convicted.
There's no word on whether he has a lawyer.
Police say Antunez was shot Sunday when officers tried to contact gang members they saw loitering in an area that's under a gang injunction.
Authorities say Antunez — who wasn't named in the injunction — was wounded during a chase and had a handgun.
He was treated at a hospital.
