|The maps below show cumulated fatal, non-fatal and no-person hit shootings cumulated from Jan. 1, 2018 to date.
(5700 block Orizaba Ave, no-person-hit shooting not indicated on map above.)
For context, the second map shows shootings cumulated from Jan. 1, 2014 through Dec. 31, 2017.
As previously reported by LBREPORT.com, the 6th district also had a person-hit shooting on March 25 (1800 block of Pine Ave.) The three 6th district person-hit shootings at the end of March amount to a level of person-hit shootings for the 6th district nearly the same per capita as Chicago.
Chicago's population is roughly 2.7 million. LB's 6th Council districts population is roughly 50,000 (meaning Chicago's population is roughly 54 times the size of LB's 6th Council district : 50,000 x 54 = 2.7 million.)
In March 2020, LB's 6th district had 3 persons shot/wounded. 3 x 54 = 162, nearly the same per capita as Chicago with 165 persons shot/wounded. [Chicago data source: www.HeyJackass,com) .
All three Council districts have incumbents endorsed by the Long Beach Police Officers Association Political Action Committee and Mayor Robert Garcia. Councilwoman Zendejas (1st dist.) was elected in November 2019; Vice Mayor Andrews (6th dist,.) and Councilman Austin (8th dist.) face November 2020 runoffs.
