A man died after complaining of chest pain following a fight with his roommate in Central Long Beach shortly after midnight on Monday, police say.

Officers responded to reports of a man yelling for help in the 300 block of East 17th Street around 12:14 a.m., according to the Long Beach Police Department. When officers arrived, they found 64-year-old Long Beach resident Miguel Colin Garduno complaining of chest pain following a physical altercation with his roommate, 34-year-old Long Beach resident Obed Placencia-Garcia.

Police said Garduno appeared to be having difficulty breathing, and paramedics were immediately requested. Garduno died at the scene after the Long Beach Fire Department rendered aid for several minutes, police said.

Homicide detectives responded to investigate, and they believe the pair was fighting over money, however the investigation is ongoing, police said.

An investigator from the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner office arrived on scene to collect the body and determined that Garduno had sustained injuries to his upper body consistent with being involved in a physical altercation.

The suspect and roommate, Placencia-Garcia, remained on the scene and was booked into Long Beach City Jail for murder. He is being held on $2 million bail.
