(January 13, 2021, 2:15 p.m.) -- Within hours after Mayor Robert Garcia delivered a "State of the City" message that didn't mention multiple shooting crime scenes disproportionately impacting mainly working class neighborhoods in NLB and Central LB and offered no plan to restore defunded officers for taxpayers, and less than twelve hours after a car-to-car shooting along Cherry Ave. between Market and South Sts., a man was found shot/wounded in the 5200 block of LB Blvd.

By LBREPORT.com's unofficial tally, it's LB's 16th shooting crime scene (includes a homicide) since Jan. 1.

LBPD Public Information Officer Allison Gallagher says that on Jan. 13, 2021 at roughly 2:45 a.m., officers responded to the 5200 block of Long Beach Boulevard (CD 8) to assist LBFD with a shooting victim (man/adult) who said he was in his vehicle when he was shot by an unknown suspect.

PIO Gallagher says the "victim was uncooperative with the investigation and did not provide any suspect information nor information regarding where the shooting occurred and officers were unable to locate a crime scene" but officers "located evidence, including the victimís vehicle, that had been struck by gunfire."

LBFD transported the victim to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

LBREPORT.com has also learned that a shooting occurred on Jan. 10, 2021 in the 400 block of Magnolia Ave. (CD 1) in which a man (adult)) stated he was parking his vehicle when two men (adults) approached him on-foot, shot at him, and fled the scene before officers arrived.

The rounds missed hitting the man but officers canvassed the area and located strike marks on the victimís vehicle, indicating a shooting had occurred.
