LONG BEACH (AP) — Authorities say Long Beach police shot and wounded a man during a foot chase.

Police spokeswoman Nancy Pratt says the shooting occurred around 7 p.m. Saturday after officers responded to a report about a gun.

Long Beach police attempted to speak with a group of people about the report but they all fled on foot.

She says that during a chase an officer shot one of them, who is in his 20s, in the upper body. The wound wasn’t believed to be life-threatening.

Police say a handgun was recovered from the scene, but they did not disclose any other details.

The Los Angles County District Attorney’s Office is investigating.
