Long Beach Police conducting murder investigation in 6700 block of Harbor Avenue

On Aug.21, 2022, at approximately 11:44 p.m., officers responded to the 6700 block of Harbor Avenue after at least one report of multiple gunshots heard in the area, and a person down in the street, which resulted in the death of a male adult.

Upon arrival, officers located a male adult victim suffering from a gunshot wound to his upper body. Long Beach Fire Department personnel arrived and determined the victim deceased at the scene.
