|(Jan. 23, 2020, 9:55 a.m.) -- With the caveat that its detectives are in the preliminary stages of their investigation, LBPD says at this time (midmorning Jan 23) "evidence suggests there was a long-term, ongoing personal dispute" between the now-murder suspect and the victims of a WLB double-shooting last night (Jan. 22, reported as breaking on LBREPORT.com) thau left a woman dead and a man wounded. .
It's the third shooting crime scene since Jan. 1 in LB's 1st Council district Zendejas) and LB's first homicide of 2020.
In a release, LBPD says its officers (patroling in the area) heard gunfire, canvassed the area and found a man and a woman (both adults) shot/wounded in the 1600 block of W. 19th St. about a block east of Santa Fe Ave. (LBPD's West Division station is on the west side of Santa Fe Ave.) Officers immediately began lifesaving measures for the woman until LBFD arrived and transported her to hospital where she did not survive.

Officers quickly learned the suspect was inside a residence in the 1600 block of West 19th Street. A perimeter was established around the residence and the suspect surrendered to officers shortly thereafter. During a search of the residence, officers located and seized the firearm believed to be used in the shooting.The maps below show cumulated fatal, non-fatal and no-person hit shootings cumulated from Jan. 1, 2018 to date.
For context, the second map shows shootings cumulated from Jan. 1, 2014 through Dec. 31, 2017.
In 2019, LB's 1st Council district had LB's highest number of shooting crime scenes, highest number of shooting victims, and highest number of homicides. (The second highest was LB's adjacent 6th Council district.)
During her campaign, Ms. Zendejas made no commitment to restore any portion of 150+ police officers that LB had but not longer has, including LBPD's former field anti-gang unit, despite 2016 LB voter approval of the Measure A General Fund ("blank check") sales tax. (A March 2020 LB ballot measure sought by the Mayor and Council asks LB voters to make the 2016 temporary Measure A sales tax permanent.)
