Southern California Community on Edge as Suspect in Fatal Shooting Eludes Capture!

Authorities in Long Beach said on Monday that they are still looking for the shooter in the deadly shooting that claimed the life of a 30-year-old man on Sunday night.

According to a press release from the Long Beach Police Department, the fatal shooting happened in the 1600 block of Gaviota Avenue, between East 16th and East 17th streets, just before 9 p.m.

The victim, Martinez Gonzalez, a resident of Long Beach, was found by authorities at the location. He had sustained an upper-body gunshot wound.

When the Long Beach Fire Department’s paramedics came, they took the 30-year-old to the hospital, where he eventually passed away from his wounds.

Gonzalez was shot by an unidentified male suspect who approached him on foot, according to the preliminary investigation, and then left the scene before the police could reach him. Although the cause of the event is now unknown, authorities stated that they believe the victim was speaking with the suspect before the shooting.

Officers saw a potential suspect car while they cleared the area with the help of murder detectives. The car started pursuing the cops when it refused to stop.

According to the cops, “the possible suspect stopped his vehicle near the 1700 block of Pacific Coast Highway and fled the scene on foot.” “The SWAT Team was activated and a perimeter was established by the officers.”

Eventually, the person was tracked down, and taken into custody at the Long Beach City Jail on a separate no-bail warrant.

The press statement stated that the gunman who opened fire on top of an apartment building in Southern California had been identified. “His involvement in the murder, if any, remains under investigation.”
