Welcome to the LBPD Blotter!
As part of our ongoing commitment to external communications and providing valuable information to our community, the Department will begin posting information about recent police activity, ongoing investigations, and other LBPD updates to the Department’s homepage and on the “News” tab of the Department’s website.
At approximately 10:00 a.m. each day, community members will be able to read preliminary information about incidents that may have occurred the previous evening, including shootings, stabbings, traffic fatality, and murder investigations, as well as any other notable incidents. This page will be a resource for the public to learn more about enforcement efforts, arrests, and commendable events and will be updated as new incidents occur.
Here’s a recap of incidents occurring last night:
Hit-Shooting – 2200 block of Cedar Avenue -
Yesterday, at approximately 9:10 p.m., officers responded to the 2200 block of Cedar Avenue regarding a shooting. Upon arrival, officers located strike marks and a blood trail. The preliminary investigation revealed a shooting had occurred; however, officers were unable to locate the victim or suspect. Officers canvassed the area for video, conducted safety checks, and searched for a possible witness. Local hospitals were notified. A short time later, a male adult victim self-transported to a local hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the upper body. Suspect information and motive are under investigation. The investigation is ongoing.
This information is preliminary and is intended for early information use rather than being a formal investigative report.
