Police say they arrested two men after finding unmarked firearms in their vehicles after an apparent fight Thursday evening.
Officers responded to the 3000 block of Bellflower Boulevard in East Long Beach regarding a fight around 7 p.m., LBPD spokeswoman Allison Gallagher said. Police searched the car and found the guns outside Tracy’s Bar and Grill, but police said the flight originated at the nearby 24 Hour Fitness, which is in the same shopping center.
According to officers at the scene, a witness said he saw a suspect with a firearm during an argument among a group of people. Officers then pulled over a car that matched a description given of the suspect’s vehicle, Gallagher said.
The driver told officers he had a firearm in the car and consented to a search, according to police. During the search, officers located and seized two firearms, police said.
Officers arrested David Ros, 35-year-old of Long Beach, and Chris Khim, 22-year-old of Long Beach, police said.
Ros was booked on suspicion of offenses including possession of a controlled substance while armed, police said. He was held on zero-dollar bail. Khim was booked on suspicion of possession of an unidentified firearm and was also held on zero-dollar bail, police said.
No injuries were reported.
