A 16-year-old walking near 10th Street was wounded when a gunman opened fire on a woman he’d been in a dispute with, injuring her as well, according to a Long Beach Police Department spokesman.

The shooting happened around 9 a.m. in the 4000 block of East 10th Street, which is about three blocks west of Wilson High School, LBPD spokesman Brandon Fahey said.

Fahey said the woman was outside of her home when she “became involved in a dispute” with a man. Police believe she knows the man, but further details about their relationship or disagreement weren’t immediately available.

The dispute escalated, and the man opened fire, hitting the woman, according to police. The gunfire also hit the 16-year-old boy who wasn’t involved but happened to be walking in the area at that moment, Fahey said.

The victims were taken to local hospitals. They were both wounded in the upper body and expected to survive, Fahey said. Police described the boy’s injuries as “minor gunshot wounds.”

Police said they’re still investigating and working to determine a motive. The shooter fled before officers arrived, according to police, who didn’t provide any further description.
