|(Oct. 29, 2016) -- Shots were fired in the predawn hours Saturday (Oct. 29) and an unoccupied vehicle was struck by gunfire near the LB city limits in NW NLB (area of Long Beach Blvd./69th Way, 9th dist.) where LBPD says suspected gang members had allegedly been tagging (engaging in graffiti vandalism.)
LBPD Watch Commander Lt. Dina Zapalski says that at about 3:00 a.m., LBPD responded after a call reported shots-fired. Responding officers learned that suspected gang members were tagging in the area; confirmed that a shooting had occurred; found an unoccupied vehicle had been struck by gunfire...but no person appears to have been hit.

In September 2016, the City Council voted to adopt a FY17 budget recommended by Mayor Robert 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.) LBPD's current internal gang unit handles investigations, follow-ups, court appearances and the like. The Council's Sept. 2016 budget vote restored 10 officers out of roughly 200 officers that Long Beach taxpayers no longer receive as a result of Council budget actions since FY10.
The Council's September 2016 budget vote left 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.
