(March 22, 2021, 11:10 a.m.) -- Long Beach, and in particular North Long Beach, had another shooting overnight. It follows a shooting roughly 24 hours earlier in the 2100 block Hullett (CD 9/Richardson) in which a resident heard gunfire overnight and awoke to find a bullet lodged in his window.

The March 22 shooting took place in the midnight hour in the 4900 block of Daisy Ave. (CD 8). LBPD Public Information Officer Brandon Fahey says that at about 12:35 a.m. officers responded to the location and contacted a man and a woman who live (separately) in a multi-unit residence. "Both victims stated they were inside their respective residences when they heard shots nearby and observed their residence had been struck by gunfire. Officers located evidence, including casings and strike marks, indicating a shooting had occurred, PIO Fahey says,

No physical injuries were reported (no one appears to have been hit); there's no immediate suspect information and the shooter's motive isn't immediately known as LBPD's investigation continues.

As of dawn March 22, residents in parts of NLB -- CD 9 (Richardson) combined with the northern part of CD 8 (Austin) -- have experienced 30 shootings (person hit + casings found/no person hit + a homicide) since Jan. 1. That's the highest combined area total citywide, exceeding 29 in Central LB -- CD 1 (Zendejas) combined with CD 6 (Saro).
