A gunman at Fashion Island in Newport Beach allegedly fired more than 50 rounds in a parking lot at the busy shopping mall before he was apprehended by police, authorities said Saturday. Marcos Gurrola, a 42-year-old Garden Grove resident, was arrested in the parking lot near the Macy's department store shortly after firing the shots about 4:30 p.m., said Kathy Lowe, a spokeswoman for the Newport Beach Police Department. Officers on bike patrol apprehended the man, who apparently was trying to get into a white Volvo at the time of his arrest, Lowe said.

Sol Reyes Roberts is a five-year survivor of breast cancer. But before her diagnosis in January 2007, she had already given back to breast cancer research. She began running in the Susan G. Komen Orange County Race for the Cure in 2004 with Latinas Race for the Cure. "When you see the number of survivors, it's an overwhelming sensation," Roberts, a Laguna Beach resident and retired nurse, said of the race.

The opening of the first Tommy Bahama Home Store, a division of the lifestyle brand of the same name, was worth the wait, according to a Newport Beach interior designer.
