    LBPD Officer-Involved Shooting, Temple/20th, While Investigating Multiple "Cat Burglaries" in ELB and Signal Hill

    (November 4, 2004) -- An LBPD officer-involved shooting took place in Signal Hill on November 4th at roughly 4:30 a.m. when LBPD undercover detectives, working with Signal Hill PD, were in the area of Temple Ave. and 20th St. investigating a series of "cat burglaries" (burglaries while occupants are in the house).

    LBPD says in a written release that the shooting occurred after they attempted to arrest a male suspect. The release says:

    Fifteen known burglaries had occurred in the East Long Beach and Signal Hill area over the last four months. In one of the incidents, the suspect stabbed a victim when he was confronted...[W]hile in the area, the undercover detectives observed a male subject matching the description of the cat burglary suspect attempt to enter several residences in the 2000 block of Crescent Drive. At that time the detectives established a perimeter around the residences. The suspect then walked out of a garage and was confronted by detectives. A detective fired his weapon after he saw the suspect make an overt movement as if he were armed. The suspect was struck at least once in the torso and began running away. The suspect was immediately located in the 2000 block of Temple Avenue and taken into custody. He was transported to a local hospital and treated for his injuries.

    LBPD identified the suspect as Carl Newson, 22, of LB. He's in the hospital now with wounds that don't appear to be life-threatening.
