In a subsequent Oct. 10 release, LBPD more precisely identifies the location as the 1900 block of Canal St.
(Oct. 9, 2018, 5:30 p.m.) -- A man was shot and killed at midafternoon today (Oct. 9) in the 1500 block of W. Summit St. (1st Council district, very near 7th dist. border), just blocks east of Cabrillo High and LBPD's West Division station.

LBPD Public Information Officer Arantxa Chavarria says (initial information) that at about 3:05 p.m., officers responded to a shots-fired call in the 1500 block of W. Summit, found a man (adult) hit by gunfire; LBFD Paramedics responded and pronounced the man deceased at the scene.

An individual in the area reports seeing a woman weeping at the scene. The individual reports hearing the gunshots and hoped they were fireworks.

It's the LB's 26th homicide in 2018 to date (the 10th homicide in LB's 1st Council district (Councilwoman Gonzalez), with more than twice the number than LB's 6th Council district with 4 to date.)

As previously reported (and continuously updated in a chart on LBREPORT.com's front page, upper right column), with two and a half months remaining, LB's 26 homicides in 2018 thus far have exceeded the 22 for all of 2017 (a record low as it was one homicide less than a year earlier.)

LBPD Homicide Detectives are on-scene and LBPD's investigation is active and ongoing.
