Two men were shot last night in what police say may have been a drive-by shooting.
Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) officers responded to the scene in the area of Atlantic Ave. and Artesia Blvd. at about 6:05PM regarding a shooting, said LBPD spokeswoman Megan Zabel. Police learned that two men had been hit by gunfire, and Long Beach Fire Department personnel transported the victims to a local hospital, where they are in stable condition.
A preliminary investigation found that it appears a suspect was driving by while firing on the victims, Zabel said.
No suspects were in custody, and no other information was available. We will update the story as we learn more.
