A person was shot and wounded by Anaheim police in a residential area of Buena Park Friday, authorities said.

Few details were immediately available on the shooting, which occurred in the area of Grand Avenue and Adams Way, just south of Knott’s Berry Farm.

The location is a few blocks north of Anaheim city limits.

Officials describe the individual shot as a “suspect,” but it’s unclear what the person was originally wanted on suspicion of.

Buena Park police say they became involved around 4:40 p.m., when Anaheim police requested assistance with a suspect with a gun that ran into their jurisdiction.

It’s unclear what led up to the use of lethal force.

Police say the person was hospitalized after being shot.

Buena Park police were investigating the incident, but could not be reached for details Friday night.
