LBPD Investigating After Dead Body Found in Central Long Beach
Long Beach Police are investigating the circumstances behind the death of a young man in Central Long Beach Wednesday night.
According to LBPD officials, officers were initially dispatched to the 1400 block of St. Louis Avenue to support Long Beach Firefighters with a teenager who apparently collapsed from an injuriy. However, when LBFD personnel found the victim, they realized the young man was shot and called for police a second time.
The victim suffered a single gunshot wound in his upper body and died at the scene before police arrived, LBPD says.
Authorities would later identify the victim as 14-year old Arthur Touch of Long Beach.
Touch's death is being investigated as a gang-related shooting
