(April 3, 2021, 6:45 a.m.) -- LB's 1st Council district (Councilwoman Zednejas) began April with a double-shooting that included a homicide.

The shooting occurred in WLB's Summit/Canal neighborhood, just blocks east of Cabrillo High. The area has been plagued in recent years by several shootings, many with gang involvement. One of the more notorious was the Oct. 2018 death of Jose Corrales, 69, killed in a drive-by shooting while he watered his lawn (not the alleged shooter's target.)

In the April 2, 2021 shooting, LBPD states in a release:

On April 2, 2021 at approximately 1:34 a.m., officers were dispatched to a shots call in the 1900 block of Canal Avenue, which resulted in the death of a male adult.

Upon arrival, officers located a male adult laying on the ground next to the street in the area of Canal Avenue and Summit Street, who was suffering from gunshot wounds to his upper torso. Officers followed a blood trail and located a crime scene in the rear alley area where a male adult was found in a garage suffering from a gunshot wound to his upper torso. Officers rendered medical aid to both victims until the Long Beach Fire Department personnel arrived and determined one male adult was deceased and transported the second male adult to a local hospital, where he is listed in critical, but stable condition.

No weapons were located at the scene and the motive is under investigation. The incident is being investigated as being gang-related.

The deceased victim has been identified by the Los Angeles County Coronerís Office as 40-year-old Daniel Jacinto, a resident of Long Beach...

Failing to restore funding for the field anti-gang unit takes place in the context of the Mayor/Council's defunding of additional police officers (Sept. 2020 Council budget vote, 9-0) that LB taxpayers previously had. The net result (including the 2009-2015 defunding of roughly 200 officers) has left LB with a thin per capita police level of roughly 1.5 officers per thousand residents.) By comparison, L.A and Santa Monica budget roughly 2.43 and 2.49 officers per thousand residents respectively (not including LA Airport/Port police.) Signal Hill, surrounded by Long Beach, budgets roughly 3.15 sworn officers per thousand residents for its taxpayers.
