|(Jan. 7, 2019, 10:20 a.m .) -- Gunfire flew in south Wrigley at midafternoon Sunday Jan. 6, aimed at a man (adult) on the sidewalk but didn't hit him.
LBPD Public Information Officer Benjamin Hearst says that on Sun. Jan. 6, 2019 at about 2:30 p.m., officers were sent to the 2100 block of Oregon Ave. (7th Council district) regarding a shooting that had just occurred. They found a man on the sidewalk who'd been shot at but not struck by gunfire...and officers located evidence of a shooting.
LBPD says it's investigating what took place as possibly gang related.
About 13 hours earlier and about a mile southeast, a suspect fired shots at a group of individuals in downtown Long Beach in the area of Pine Ave./5th St.
As previously reported by LBREPORT.com, the northern part of Wrigley heard overnight gunfire on December 19 in the 3100 block of Chestnut Ave. (casings found by a resident) with callers also reporting gunfire heard about the same time in the area of Spring St./DeForest Ave. (no evidence of shooting found.)
