|(November 1, 2016) -- A man (adult) was shot to death this morning in the area of 9th St./Lime Ave.. Initial information is very sketchy.
LBPD Public Information Officer Nancy Pratt says that at about 2:10 a.m. today (Nov. 1), LBPD received a report of a shooting in the 600 block of E. 9th St.; officers arrived and found man who'd been hit by gunfire; LBFD responded and determined the victim (who appears to be in his 20's) was deceased. There's no immediate word on whether what took place was gang-related; LBPD Homicide detectives are actively investigating.

The 9th/Lime crime scene is roughly half a mile due east of where a mother and her daughter were shot to death in August at 9th St./Locust Ave. Both crime scenes are in the 1st Council district, which within the past 90 days has had six shootings (one on the border of the 6th dist.) in which four shooting victims died, in addition to two fatal stabbings.)
The 1st Council district has been represented since mid-2014 by Councilwoman Lena Gonzalez (who tried to cover our camera lens when we asked in late August if she favored budgeting more police officers for taxpayers than Mayor Robert Garcia had proposed.) As reported yesterday by LBREPORT.com, Councilwoman Gonzalez is currently visiting China (along with Vice Mayor/9th dist. Councilman Rex Richardson) on a trip organized by the So. Cal. Ass'n of Governments, an entity that operates using dues paid by various regional government entities, including the City of Long Beach.
In September 2016, LB Councilmembers adopted a FY17 budget recommended by Mayor Garcia that -- despite June 2016 LB voter approval of a sales tax increase to 10% -- failed to restore LBPD's former field anti-gang unit (20 officers + 2 sergeants.) The Council's Sept. 2016 budget vote restored 10 officers (Garcia recommended 8; the Council added 2 more for homeless issues) out of roughly 200 officers that Long Beach residents no longer receive as a result of Council budget actions since FY10.
The Council's September 2016 budget vote leaves LB taxpayers with a budgeted police level for citywide deployment roughly equivalent per capita to what Los Angeles would have if L.A. Mayor Garcetti and the L.A. City Council cut roughly 30% of LAPD's officers.
Most of the shootings we reported below were either confirmed as or investgated as possibly gang related by LBPD.
Long Beach currently budgets roughly 200 fewer officers deployable citywide for its taxpayers than the City provided in FY10 as a result of Council-voted LBPD budget reductions that left the city with roughly 20% fewer officers than it had in 2009. Long Beach currently provides a budgeted sworn officer level for citywide deployment roughly equivalent per capita to what Los Angeles would have if it cut about 30% of LAPD's officers.
