Police say a man shot at another man after they got into a “verbal exchange” outside a motel along a stretch of Pacific Coast Highway in Central Long Beach Thursday night.
The man told police he was walking in the 700 block of Queens Way Drive, which is near the Hotel Maya, around 12:50 a.m. when three men approached him, according to police.
The suspect is described as a male Black, age 28-30 years-old.
The 31-year-old female deputy and 24-year-old male deputy underwent surgery Saturday evening, Sheriff Alex Villanueva said in a late-night news conference.
Police have not yet made any arrests or made a final decision if the shooter acted in self defense.
A man told officers he was shot in an attempted robbery Wednesday night near Downtown Long Beach.
A man fatally shot in Lawndale on Saturday was identified as Derrick Williams, 53, of Long Beach.
No injuries were reported for the shooting, police said.
Officers were sent to the 300 block of East 14th Street following reports about a shooting Monday at 11:15 p.m.
Officers located two additional victims, both men, who were not struck by gunfire, police said.
