LONG BEACH (CBS) — A 38-year-old man was fatally shot in a Long Beach motel room, a spokeswoman said Saturday.

The shooting occurred in the 1000 block of East Seventh Street at 8:20 p.m. Friday, Long Beach police spokeswoman Nancy Pratt said. At least one person was arrested as a suspect.

The deceased, a Long Beach resident, was found shot in the upper torso, Pratt said. He was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead shortly after his arrival.
