The Long Beach Police Department could soon have easier access to a large network of security cameras now that it’s partnered with the doorbell camera company Ring.
The driver of the car, a 19-year-old from Los Angeles, stayed at the scene and cooperated with police.
Detectives don’t know if there is a relationship between the victim and suspect, but they believe this was an isolated incident, according to a news release.
Police do not yet believe the shootings are related to each other or gang related.
Rodney Willis, a 35-year-old Long Beach man, was arrested on Friday on suspicion of murder and a probation violation, according to authorities.
Prosecutors have charged a Long Beach man with making a false bomb threat and resisting arrest for allegedly running into a classroom at Cerritos College and claiming to have a bomb.
The man had been riding a bicycle across the northbound lanes of the Los Coyotes Diagonal when he was struck, police spokeswoman Shaunna Dandoy said.
Despite complaints from residents about high-visibility crimes making rounds on social media, police officials say yearly crime rates are actually down when compared to last year and the average over the past five years.
The victim confronted the suspects, two men and two women, and called police at about 1:25 p.m.
Police also cited 14 people for unsafe driving, 12 drivers for being unlicensed and two for driving with a suspended or revoked license.
