about 7:30 p.m., with a tip that the suspect lived in a neighboring city, Hylton said. Further details about that call were not immediately available. About 7:40 p.m., deputies received a call of a reckless driver in Mission Viejo, with the vehicle description matching the one given to deputies in San Clemente, Hylton said.
While searching for the vehicle, another call came in of a shooting behind a business near the area of Marguerite Parkway and La Paz Road, Hylton said, adding that the description again matched the suspect vehicle.
Deputies arrived and found a woman with a non-life threatening gunshot wound in the area of Marguerite and La Paz, he said.
They later found the suspect vehicle, but French had fled on foot.
“He was taken into custody a short time later” not far from the suspect vehicle, Hylton said.
French and the woman did not know each other, he said.
“It appears that she was just a witness to him being involved in a traffic collision,” Hylton said. “And it sounds like he fled that scene, pulled into a parking lot and she pulled in after him.”
It wasn’t clear why she followed him, or if she was in the car when she was shot.
News video from OC HAWK appeared to show a man wearing a gray shirt and black shorts climbing up a hillside. At one point, the man takes his shirt off before he is taken into custody by deputies at the top of a hill.
Video also showed investigators searching an area near MasterCare Car Service in the 27200 block of La Paz Road.
