Police said they were alerted to the shooting on Euclid Avenue just south of 10th Street around 10:30 p.m.

A witness told officers he’d seen two men and a woman in some kind of argument outside his home before the gunfire, Long Beach police Sgt. Vincent Otto said. Investigators think one of the men started shooting at the other man, but missed, Otto said.

The gunfire hit a nearby home, and officers found a shell casing at the scene, but the three people involved were already gone when police got there, Otto said.

At this point it doesn’t appear anyone was hurt, according to police, who are still investigating.

A more detailed description of the suspect wasn’t immediately available.
