LONG BEACH (CNS) – A man was wounded Saturday in a shooting in the Belmont Shore area of Long Beach.
The shooting was reported about 3:45 p.m. in the area of Second Street and Bay Shore Avenue, according to Long Beach Police Department spokesman Richard Mejia.
“Upon arrival, officers contacted a male adult victim who was suffering from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the upper body,” Mejia said. Paramedics took the victim to a hospital for treatment.
“Preliminary investigation suggests the victim and a male adult suspect were engaged in a physical altercation, which escalated when the suspect shot the victim,” he said. “The suspect was still on scene when officers arrived and is currently detained at the scene.”
