LONG BEACH (CBS) — Police Sunday were investigating the circumstances surrounding the shooting death of a man believed to be in his late 20s.

Authorities responded to a “shots fired” call about 11:35 p.m. in the 100 block of E. 56th Street, according to a news release issued by the Long Beach Police Department.

An initial investigation revealed that the victim had just left a house party when he was involved in a confrontation with a group of men. One of the suspects then pulled out a gun, striking him in the lower body before fleeing, said spokeswoman Nancy Pratt at the Long Beach Police Department.

The man was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Anyone with more information is asked to contact authorities at (562) 570-7244.

    Is this really surprising? Mudflaps and ILLEGAL ALIENS acting like their heritage and baby mamas have taught them.

    …no doubt, had to be some poor white boy that mudflaps and illegal aliens just love to victimize and dominate because they are such a weak pathetic race 🙂

      We try to follow the law, crime is in your blood and ethics. Your family structure is cracked at best. I bet fathers day is really confusing at your house.
