Police say they’re investigating a pair of shootings in North Long Beach that left 2 men injured.
The first shooting took place just after 6:30 p.m. in the 700 block of Harding Avenue, which is near Houghton Park, according to police.
There, a group was involved in an argument with two people in the area when one of the two people shot at them, striking a man in the group, police said.
Good Samaritans transported the wounded man to a local hospital with a life-threatening gunshot wound to the upper body, authorities said. As of Tuesday, he is in stable condition, police said.
Though the suspects fled the scene before officers arrived, police found evidence at the scene, including bullet casings, authorities said.
Officers were notified of a second shooting just after midnight in the 5500 block of Ackerfield Avenue, according to the Long Beach Police Department.
There, a man was driving when a group of men standing on the sidewalk opened fire at him, striking him in the lower body, police said.
Authorities responded to the scene and provided medical aid to the man before transporting him to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
Bullet casings and strike marks were also found at the scene of the shooting, according to authorities.
At this time, there is no suspect information in either shooting and any motives remain under investigation, police said.
