[LBPD release text] -- On Wednesday, June 7, 2017, at approximately 11:55 p.m., Long Beach Police were dispatched to the area of Studebaker Road and East Spring Street regarding a person with a gun call and shots fired that resulted in an officer involved shooting.

Long Beach Police Homicide detectives responded to the scene to begin their extensive investigation. At this time, the preliminary investigation revealed the following:

  • A male adult and a female adult who are boyfriend and girlfriend were involved in an ongoing argument.
  • As he left a residence and was nearing the intersection of Studebaker Road and East Spring Street in a vehicle, the female who had left prior to him, fired several shots in his direction.
  • The victim who was not struck by gunfire, escaped, and called police.
  • Officers who were in the area arrived at this crime in progress within a few minutes.
  • The victim flagged down the officers and directed them to the area where the suspect was last seen.
  • The officers quickly located the armed female suspect. They shouted multiple commands to drop the handgun but the suspect refused to comply with their lawful orders, pointed a handgun at the officers, and the officer involved shooting occurred.
  • Officers immediately administered life saving measures until Long Beach Fire Department personnel arrived.
  • Fire personnel determined the suspect deceased at the scene.
  • The suspect’s handgun was recovered at the scene (see photo) [photo below]
  • No officers or other parties were injured.
  • There are no outstanding suspects involved in this incident.

The suspect is not being identified at this time. The Los Angeles County Coroner will make positive identification and notify next of kin.

The Police Department thoroughly reviews all use of force incidents through a rigorous multi-step process that evaluates legal, policy, tactical, and equipment issues. Additionally, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office is conducting an independent investigation of the shooting, as they do with all officer involved shootings that occur in Los Angeles County that result in injury or death....
