A motorist drove away uninjured early Sunday after his vehicle was shot at while he was parked in a lot near the Aquarium of the Pacific in the city’s waterfront area, authorities said.
A short time later, the man flagged down police near 11th Street and Pine Avenue at about 4:35 a.m. and alerted them to the shooting, said Long Beach police spokeswoman Jennifer De Prez.
“Officers located evidence consistent with bullet impact on the victim’s vehicle,” De Prez said.
However, when police canvassed the reported shooting scene—a parking lot near Pierpoint Landing, at 200 Aquarium Way—they did not find evidence of a shooting, she said.
No injuries have been reported and no suspect information was available, De Prez said.
This is the second shooting to have reportedly taken place in the same area in recent weeks.
During an Aug. 18 shooting, a man and woman were wounded and three vehicles were damaged by gunfire.
