7 injured in shooting at Long Beach nightclub

Seven men were wounded when shots were fired by at least two suspects during what police are calling a gang-related shooting in the parking lot of a Long Beach nightclub, authorities said Sunday.

The shooting occurred at about 11:15 p.m. Saturday in the area of South Street and Paramount Boulevard, according to the Long Beach Police Department.

Four of the victims are in critical but stable condition and three suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police said. Some of the victims were taken to hospitals in private vehicles.


The suspects fled the scene before officers arrived. Suspect information was not immediately released, and the motive remains under investigation.

Streets in the area were shut down during the investigation but have since reopened.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
