A man who allegedly robbed a photo store in Garden Grove was shot by a policeman who chased him into Santa Ana, a police spokesman said. Lt. John Woods said the man, who was not identified, walked into the Photo Place at 14051 Brookhurst St. and robbed an employee of $40, then fled in a car. Moments later, a patrolman saw the fleeing man and chased him. When the man was involved in a minor accident at Harbor Boulevard and Hazard Street in Santa Ana, he fled on foot. The patrolman chased him and gunfire was exchanged, Woods said, and the man was hit once. He was taken to UC Irvine Medical Center in Orange, where he was listed in serious condition, Woods said. Woods said the investigation was continuing.
