Gang detectives investigating shooting with uncooperative victim

A man was shot overnight in Long Beach but refused to tell police where the crime happened, authorities said.

Officers responded to a local hospital just before 12:30 a.m. Saturday regarding a shooting victim and talked to a man with non-life threatening gunshot wounds to his upper body, police spokeswoman Shaunna Dandoy said.

“The victim was uncooperative during the initial investigation and provided limited information regarding the shooting,” she said.

Police do not have any suspect information and have not been able to find a crime scene, but gang detectives are investigating the incident.
