Man fatally shot in alleyway near Long Beach City College, police say

Police say they’re investigating a shooting Wednesday afternoon near Long Beach City College that left a man dead.

The man, according to Long Beach police, was standing in an alley near the 1800 block of Gardenia Avenue sometime before 1:30 p.m. when someone walked up to him and shot him.

The suspect then ran away from the area, police said.



Authorities responded to the scene after reports of multiple gunshots in the area and found the victim with a gunshot wound to the upper body, police said.

Authorities rendered aid to the victim at the scene before taking him to a local hospital where he died, police said. His identity was not immediately revealed as the Los Angeles Medical Examiner’s office works to notify his relatives of his death.

It’s unclear why the suspect shot the man, according to police.

Police urge anyone with more information to contact detectives at 562-570-7244.
