Shooting in West Long Beach Leaves 1 Dead and Another Wounded.


LBPD says, at roughly 6:30 pm, two officers were in the area of Santa Fe Ave and W.19th St in West Long Beach when they heard gunfire. While inspecting the gunfire, the officers found two victims suffering from gun-shoot wounds to their upper body.

  • Both victims, one a male and the other a female, were sent to a nearby hospital, unfortunately, the female victim would later pass away from her injuries.

  • A male suspect was later taken into police custody after the LBPD placed the area on lockdown.

  • LBPD investigators do believe the victims and gunmen know each other, and according to the LBP, neighbors said the victims are landlords and the suspect was a tenant, but the exact motive is unknown.
