(Updated Sept. 22, 2018) -- Now, it's murder. The man shot/wounded on Sept. 17 in the area of LB Blvd./14th St. has died.

LBPD says in a release that on Sept. 19, it was notified by the hospital that the victim had died from his injuries. He was Fernando Rodriguez, 46, of Long Beach. LBPD's release says it's unknown if the incident is gang related, and the investigation remains ongoing.


(Sept. 17, 2018, 8:10 a.m.) A man was shot/wounded overnight in the area of Long Beach Blvd./14th St. (1st Council dist) about a block north of Anaheim St. The shooting, which LBPD is investigating as possibly gang related, comes three days after a fatal shooting in the 1200 block of Chestnut Ave. (also 1st Council district).

It's the seventh shooting in the 1st Council dist. (Gonzalez) since August 1 after Mayor Robert Garcia recommended a FY19 budget offering a net restoration of 5 additional citywide deployable officers, leaving 186 unrestored for taxpayers (including LBPD former field anti-gang unit.)

Chad Ellis.tells LBREPORT.com that at about 1:30 a.m. on Sept. 17, officers responded to a shooting in the 1400 block of LB Blvd where a man (adult) was hit and transported to a hospital.
