Two men were wounded in two separate, but nearby shootings in North Long Beach within a 2 1/2-hour period, authorities said today.
Suspect information was not available for either shooting, but both were possibly gang-related, Long Beach police Lt. Omar Martinez said.
In the first shooting at 10 p.m. Sunday at South Street and Orange
Avenue, a man suffered a non-life-threatening wound to the lower body, he said.
The patient, who was not identified, was taken to a hospital for treatment.
In the second shooting at 12:25 this morning in the 1100 block of East South Street, the unidentified victim was wounded in the upper body and had stable vital signs at a hospital, Martinez said.
