A person died Wednesday morning at a motel in North Long Beach, and police are investigating the incident as a possible homicide, authorities said.

Police responded around 7 a.m. to the Scottish Inns Long Beach in the 5400 block of Atlantic Avenue after receiving reports of a child being abused in the area, according to the LBPD.

At the scene, police found a victim suffering from undisclosed injuries and provided aid until Long Beach Fire Department personnel arrived to take over. Paramedics transported the victim to a local hospital where they were pronounced dead, police said.

At this time, the age of the victim is not known, Long Beach police spokesperson Richard Mejia said. Homicide detectives were on the scene and are interviewing potential witnesses, Mejia said.

Yellow tape blocked off the motel parking lot all morning as squad cars came and went. A handful of neighbors stepped outside the gated apartment complex next door, wondering if police would update them on what was going on.

The manager of the Scottish Inns Long Beach, who preferred to go by her surname, Patel, said that she does not know what happened at the inn Wednesday morning, other than police asking to check one of the rooms.

Juan Correa, who owns an architecture business two buildings down from the motel, said he got to work early Wednesday morning to find multiple squad cars in front of the motel.

Shortly after, Correa said he saw police detain a man and a woman, with the man shouting “I love you, baby,” over and over again, Correa said. LBPD did not confirm whether any arrests had been made and said more information would be provided at a later date.

The investigation is ongoing.
