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.

  • Streaming 562 reported that the victim was shot in the head, but the LBPD only mentions the victim's wounds as being in his upper body.

  • The suspect fled the scene before police arrived, and the investigation is ongoing.
