(Feb. 14, 2019, 6:55 p.m.) -- LBPD has arrested three suspects and says its homicide Detectives believe a gang-related argument motivated the January 23 shooting at Anaheim St./Locust Ave. that left a man dead and a bystander-woman wounded.

In a Feb. 14 release, LBPD says its Homicide detectives identified and arrested a 36 year old San Bernardino man (who they believe was involved in the murder), along with a 61 year old Los Angeles man and a 31 year old Long Beach (who they believe had knowledge of the murder and assisted the first man intending that he might avoid prosecution.)

LBPD plans to present the case to the L.A. County District Attorney's office later this week for filing consideration...and LBPD's investigation is ongoing.

At roughly 10:45 p.m. on Jan. 23, officers were sent to the 200 block of E. Anaheim St and found a man on the sidewalk with a gunshot wound; LBFD pronounced the victim (a 24-year old Compton resident) deceased at the scene; LBPD's preliminary investigation indicated he was involved in a physical altercation with the suspects immediately prior to the shooting. A woman (adult) bystander, not related to the decedent or involved in the altercation, was hit by gunfire and treated at a hospital for a non-life-threatening wound.

LBPD said at the time: "The suspects are described as three male African American adults driving a dark colored four-door SUV."

A separate map (not shown here) shows cumulated shootings during the period in Central.



In August 2016, Councilwoman Gonzalez tried to cover's camera lens when we asked following the 1st district's community budget meeting if she'd favor restoring more than 8 officers recommended by Mayor Garcia entering FY17. The Council has since voted to restore a total of 22 citywide deployable officers to date out of 208 erased by former Councils that included Gonzalez' predecessor, then-Councilman Garcia.

Among officers not restored to date is LBPD's former field anti-gang unit.
