Police today are still searching for a man who fired a gun during an argument Thursday afternoon, prompting a SWAT response in Long Beach’s Wrigley neighborhood.
Officers were notified of the shooting around 3:45 p.m. Thursday and responded to the 2200 block of Locust Avenue.
Police say the victim was outside of a home in the area when an argument broke out between him and another man he knows. The argument escalated, and the man eventually revealed a gun and fired it, according to police.
Nobody was injured, and the suspect fled in an unknown direction before officers arrived, according to the Long Beach Police Department. Officers, meanwhile, investigated the scene and located evidence of the shooting, such as strike marks, authorities said.
LBPD later activated its SWAT team at around 7:20 p.m. to serve a search warrant at a home in the area. But ultimately, upon serving the warrant, authorities were unable to locate the shooting suspect.
At this time, no further suspect information is known, and the investigation is ongoing, police said.
