Long Beach police were investigating a shooting in Bixby Knolls that may have been the result of road rage this evening, authorities said.
The gunfire left a man wounded, but he didn’t cooperate with police after a third party took him to the hospital, Long Beach police spokeswoman Arantxa Chavarria said.
“The victim is not cooperating with our investigation so no suspect(s) information is known at this time,” Chavarria said.
Police learned of the shooting when someone who heard the shots called officers to Orange Avenue near San Antonio Drive around 5:30 p.m. Officers at the scene were examining a bus shelter with shattered glass.
Taylor Vigil, who moved to Bixby Knolls a few months ago, said he was watching a TED Talk when “all of a sudden I heard pop and then pop, pop, pop.” He estimated there were seven or eight shots.
It wasn’t immediately clear how badly the victim was wounded.
