(May 31, 2021, 12:20 p.m.) A woman in a central LB apartment (1000 block of Hoffman Ave., CD 2 bordering CD 6 and CD 4) was wounded by gunfire and LBPD says it came from a gun negligently fired by a 15 year old girl in a neighboring apartment, LBPD has booked the juvenile and a relative on suspicion of various offenses (below.)

LBPD Public Information Officer Brandon Fahey says that on May 31 at about 11:21 p.m., officers responded to the 1000 block of Hoffman Ave regarding a report of an assault with a deadly weapon.

"Upon arrival, officers learned a female adult victim was in her apartment when she was struck by gunfire...The victimís partner transported her to a hospital where she is in stable condition. Officers located evidence indicating a shooting had occurred and seized a firearm at the scene."

"Through their preliminary investigation, officers determined a 15-year-old female juvenile in a neighboring apartment negligently discharged a firearm, causing one of the projectiles to go through the wall and strike the victim. The juvenile was taken into custody without incident and has been booked on firearms-related charges.

Officers also arrested the juvenile's relative, Ruby Jene Ibarra, at the scene [on suspicion of] one count of child cruelty and one count of criminal storage of a firearm. Bail was set at $100,000."

No other injuries were reported and LBPD's investigation is ongoing.
