|(July 2, 2020, 9:15 p.m.) - LBPD says officers found bullet casings after gunfire between two groups at midafternoon today (July 2) in NLB's DeForest Park (6200 block of DeForest Ave.)
No persons were hit in today's shooting but the gunfire comes less than two days after a June 30 fatal shooting in the 400 block of Adair St just blocks away in the well kept residential neighborhood west of Atlantic Ave. and north of 60th St. (9th district.)
LBPD Public Information Officer Jennifer De Prez says that on July 2, 2020 at about 1:20 p.m., officers responded to the park in the 6200 block of De Forest Ave. regarding a report of a possible shooting
"Upon arrival officers did not locate any victims but did locate evidence of a shooting, casings, in the area. Preliminary investigation revealed a group of subjects were in the park when a dispute occurred, which led one or more suspects firing shots at each other."
PIO De Prez says all had fled the scene prior to officer arrival. There's no immediate motive for the shooting which is under investigation.
North Long Beach News publisher Dan Pressburg, a long time resident of the area, says Deforest Park "is a pristine well kept neighborhood. It is like traveling back in time to Mayberry. Neighbors know and still care about one another."
