Lahabra The Orange County district attorney’s office is investigating a shooting in which a La Habra police officer shot a 47-year-old man who had possibly violated a restraining order, authorities said.

La Habra police officers were en route about 10:30 p.m. Thursday to a residence in the 1700 block of West Lambert Road where a caller complained of a restraining order violation, the department said.

A man then entered the residence and the call was disconnected.

Shortly after arriving at the residence, an officer reported that he had been involved in a shooting, the department said.

The victim was treated at the scene by Los Angeles County Fire Department personnel and taken to a hospital.

No other injuries were reported.
