Police say they’re looking for a gunman who shot at a passerby who ignored him near Admiral Kidd Park in West Long Beach on Tuesday.
The incident happened on W. 23rd Street near Seabright Avenue where a man was walking around 8:30 p.m., Long Beach police spokeswoman Allison Gallagher said in an email.
The man told police he was walking when another man came up and tried to talk to him, according to Gallagher.
“The victim ignored the suspect and kept walking,” Gallagher said. “As the victim was walking away, the suspect shot at the victim and then fled the area on foot.”
The victim was not wounded, according to the department.
Police said they found bullet casings at the scene, but they didn’t have a detailed description of the suspect immediately available.
Detectives don’t yet know a motive and are still investigating, Gallagher said.
