Man shot near Junipero Beach, suspect on the run
The Long Beach Police Department is investigating a shooting that injured one man near the bike path at Bixby Park late Friday evening, according to LBPD spokesperson Paige White.
Police responded to the incident at roughly 8:25 p.m., at the 2100 block of Ocean Boulevard. When the officers arrived, they came upon an adult male with a gunshot wound to his upper body, Paige says.
LBFD transported the victim to a nearby hospital, where he remains in critical condition.
