In updated information, LBPD's release states:

Based on the preliminary investigation, the decedent contacted the shooting victim in the parking lot of the hotel and assaulted him while robbing him at gunpoint. During the robbery, another male suspect joined in the robbery and the decedent fired a handgun multiple times, striking the robbery victim and striking the additional robbery suspect. The additional robbery suspect fled the scene on foot and is currently outstanding. The fight continued between the decedent and the robbery victim until another male adult subject intervened and shot the decedent, and then fled the scene. He is also currently outstanding.

The decedent was identified by the Los Angeles County Coronerís Office as a 17-year-old resident of the City of Long Beach.

The investigation remains ongoing as detectives continue to gather evidence. The incident is being investigated as gang related.
