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:
Officers Investigate Homicide - Today at approximately 6:29 a.m., officers were dispatched to the 2900 block of Coolidge Street. Upon arrival, officers contacted a female adult victim with life-threatening stab wounds to the upper body. Long Beach Fire Department personnel arrived, and declared the victim deceased at the scene. A short while later, officers located a male adult suspect near the Paramount Boulevard exit of the northbound 91 freeway. A use of force occurred, and the suspect was taken into custody. The suspect was taken to a local hospital for his minor injuries and was medically cleared. He has been transported to Long Beach City jail where he will be booked. Homicide Detectives are actively on scene to further the investigation. A news release regarding the incident will be released later today.
This information is preliminary and is intended for early information use rather than being a formal investigative report.
