(June 5, 2021, 2:25 a.m., updated at 11:25 a.m.) -- LBPD says a man (adult) was found shot in a vehicle in NLB's "Coolidge Triangle" (west of LB Blvd., south of Artesia Blvd., CD 9/Richardson) at about 7 p.m. on June 4. Transported to a hospital by LBFD, he didn't survive.

LBPD Watch Commander Ryan Watson says the shooting occurred in the area of LB Bld/Barclay St. and witnesses indicate a man (adult) was seen fleeing eastbound on Harcourt St. toward LB Blvd. in a grey four-door sedan. "Preliminarily, the shooting is believed to be gang related," Lt. Watson says in an email.

In a midmorning release, LBPD says that vased on their preliminary investigation, detectives believe the victim was inside a vehicle when an unknown number of suspects fired gunshots, striking the victim, and fled the scene prior to officerís arrival.

The victim is only being identified as a male adult in his 40ís pending notification to his next of kin by the LA County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner.

About five hours later, Long Beach had another shooting, this time in the Washington Middle School neighborhood where the west end of 14th St. Park meets Seaside Park (CD 1/Zendejas.) (LBREPORT.com coverage here.)
