Police say they’ve arrested two men in connection to the shooting death of a 27-year-old man in North Long Beach last month.
Muhammad Abdur-Rahman Nelson, 20, and Quatrelle Joaquin Carroll, 29, both of Long Beach, were taken into custody Thursday on suspicion of murder and attempted murder after police identified them as the suspects in the slaying of Fabian Lemus on Oct. 16, according to the Long Beach Police Department.
Lemus, according to authorities, was in the 5100 block of Pacific Avenue that day when he was shot in the upper body.
Lemus then drove himself to a local hospital where he later died from his injuries, police said.
Police, meanwhile, responded to the scene around 11:30 a.m. to canvass the area and check on the safety of students at nearby schools. During their search of the area police were unable to locate any suspects.
Police did not say what led them to identify the Nelson and Carroll as suspects Lemus’ death.
The case will be presented next week to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office for filing consideration, police said.
At this time, police believe the shooting to be gang-related, though the investigation is still ongoing, according to the LBPD.
