Subject: **UPDATE** Officer Involved Shooting: 200 Block E. Lincoln Avenue, City of Orange
On April 4, 2015, at approximately 7:45 A.M., Anaheim Police Officers received information that a woman who was sought on an arrest warrant the previous day by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) was at her residence in the 2800 block of E. Lincoln Avenue. Officers observed the female, later identified as Mayra Frausto (9/29/90), and a male identified as Paul Anthony Anderson (6/28/1983), get into a Toyota Prius which was driven from the area by a third individual. Anaheim Police Officers initiated an enforcement stop in the area of Lincoln Avenue and Glassell Street in the City of Orange. After the vehicle stopped, Anderson exited the car holding a “Cobray M11” nine millimeter firearm, and an officer involved shooting occurred. The subject was pronounced deceased at the scene by paramedics; no officers were injured. Frausto was taken into custody for a $30,000 traffic warrant.
On April 3, 2015, Anaheim Police were involved in a separate incident with Mr. Anderson when an officer observed a suspicious subject climb over a wall in the 2800 block of E. Lincoln Avenue. The subject, later identified as Paul Anthony Anderson, ran to a truck and quickly drove away. Believing a crime may have just occurred, the officer initiated a traffic pursuit when Anderson failed to yield. The officer lost sight of the truck on the 57 freeway in the area of Yorba Linda Boulevard. A short time later, an officer with the Placentia Police Department located the vehicle and pursued the truck until Anderson crashed at a construction site near Chapman Avenue and Orangethorpe Avenue, where Anderson was taken into custody for California Vehicle Code §2800.2 – Felony Evading.
Anaheim Officers learned that officers from the California Highway Patrol attempted to serve an arrest warrant for Mayra Frausto at the same location Anderson was seen running from. Frausto was not located inside the residence, however, a large quantity of marijuana was observed in plain view.
Anaheim officers completed and executed a search warrant based on their observations, and seized over 15 pounds of marijuana. Anderson was linked to the dwelling, and an additional allegation of §11359 Health & Safety Code – Possession of Marijuana for Sales was added to his booking charges. Anderson was transferred to Orange County Jail yesterday evening, where he later posted bail in the amount of $25,000.
Per County protocol, investigators from the Orange County District Attorney’s Office (OCDA) and the Orange Police Department (OPD) are investigating the officer involved shooting, and a concurrent internal administrative review / investigation is being conducted by the Anaheim Police Department along with the Office of Independent Review (OIR). The officers involved in this incident were equipped with body worn cameras.
All further questions related to this incident should be directed to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.
