It was immediately unclear whether any of the victims were from Newport Beach or Costa Mesa, but the shooting reverberated in the Newport-Mesa community.

This month Costa Mesa - along with six neighboring cities - was successful in thwarting a proposal to put four toll lanes on the 405 Freeway from Seal Beach to Costa Mesa. Instead, on Dec. 9, the Orange County Transportation Authority board of directors voted to build one general traffic lane in each direction at a cost of $1.3 billion and put off any talk of toll lanes until 2020. This is a major victory for Costa Mesa residents and businesses. The decision followed the banding together of mayors from Westminster, Seal Beach, Los Alamitos, Fountain Valley, Huntington Beach and Costa Mesa to strongly oppose the toll-lane proposal.
