Police believe there were dozens of witnesses at a June 23 gathering in the 1700 block of Newport Circle who could help investigators track down whoever shot Silva early that morning. “If they could picture themselves in our shoes,” the tearful sister, who did not wish to be identified, told reporters July 3. “Whoever has proof – to keep quiet, I don’t think it’s right.” Sign up for our breaking news email newsletter: When major local news happens, you will be the first to know. … [Read more...] about $10,000 reward offered for shooting that killed 18-year-old man in Santa Ana

For years, workers at the popular Utah resort have used explosive projectiles fired from a 105 mm howitzer and nonrifled guns known as Avalaunchers to blast down avalanches.
