|(November 7, 2016, 8:55 a.m.) -- A man (adult) was fatally shot on Saturday night (Nov. 5) in the neighborhood north of Anaheim St. just west of Junipero Ave. (4th Council district.)
It was the second shooting of the day, coming a little over seven hours after gunfire in which no person was hit the area of Anaheim St./Linden Ave. (1st district). It was also LB's second murder within four days (Nov. 1, man fatally shot, 9th/Lime, 1st dist.)
In a release, LBPD says that its officers were dispatched at about 9:55 p.m. on Sat. Nov. 5 to the 2300 block of Spaulding St. regarding a hit shooting; officers found a man (adult) with a gunshot wound; he was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced deceased.
LBPD says in the incident is being investigated as possibly gang related

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.
