Suspect Critically Wounded In Officer-Involved Shooting In Long Beach

LONG BEACH (   —  Authorities said a suspect was critically wounded in an officer-involved shooting Sunday afternoon.

The incident happened around 3:20 p.m. near Pacific Coast Highway and Lemon Avenue, according to Marlene Arrona of the LB Police’s Media Relations Department.

“At some point, an officer-involved shooting occurred,” Arrona said.

Police were investigating a possible armed robbery that occurred earlier in the day. They said when they approached a group of suspects, some fled on foot and others in a vehicle.

The vehicle crashed into an unoccupied parked car across the street. One suspect fled the vehicle and an officer-involved shooting occurred. That suspect was not injured, police said.

Another suspect who fled on foot was shot by police.

A weapon was reportedly located at the scene.

One suspect who was at large was later taken into custody about a block away.

Five adult males and one juvenile make will be booked on the armed robbery charge. Authorities declined to give further details about the robbery.
