LONG BEACH, CA – On Feb. 2, at approximately 6:34 p.m., officers responded to a report of gunshots near Atlantic Avenue and Esther Street, which resulted in the death of a male adult.

Upon arrival, officers located a male adult victim unresponsive in the roadway and lying next to his parked vehicle. Officers began rendering life-saving measures until paramedics from the Long Beach Fire Department arrived and transported him to a nearby hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

Homicide detectives were notified and responded to the scene. Through their preliminary investigation, they discovered the victim was approached by multiple male subjects. At least one of the men produced a handgun and fired at the victim as he sat in his vehicle. The suspects quickly ran away from the area and into a nearby apartment complex.
