(Feb. 16, 2020, 1:40 p.m.) -- A man was shot to death this morning (Sunday Feb. 16) in the 2 a.m. hour in LB's "East Village" neighborhood along 6th St. between Atlantic and Alamitos Aves (1st Council district.)

LBPD says an exact motive for the overnight shooting is unknown but it's investigating what took place as gang-related.

In a release, LBPD states:

On February 16, 2020, at approximately 2:05 a.m., officers responded to the 700 block of E. 6th Street regarding a shots call, which resulted in the death of a male adult.

Upon arrival, officers located an unresponsive male adult victim in an alleyway located behind a residence with gunshot wounds to his upper torso. Long Beach Fire Department personnel responded and determined the victim deceased at the scene. The victim is only being identified as a 33-year-old resident of Long Beach, pending notification to next of kin by the Los Angeles County Coronerís Office.

The preliminary investigation revealed a brief verbal dispute took place between the victim and a male adult suspect, which led to the shooting. The suspect fled on foot in an unknown direction and remains outstanding.

The exact motive for the shooting is currently unknown, however, the incident is being investigated as gang-related. Detectives are actively working to gather additional information to further the ongoing investigation.
