Here’s a recap of incidents occurring last night:
There were no shootings or stabbings reported overnight.
- *Update 7/3/22 at 9:30 a.m.* Officers arrest a suspect in a no-hit shooting: On 7/2/2022, at approximately 2:20 a.m., officers responded to the 2500 block of Eucalyptus Avenue regarding a shots call. Upon arrival, officers located evidence indicating a shooting had occurred, including casings, and several unoccupied vehicles, and a residence that had been struck by gunfire. Officers contacted a male adult victim who stated he was outside his residence when a truck pulled up nearby. A suspect from inside the vehicle fired shots and fled the scene prior to officers arrival. Responding officers located a vehicle matching the suspect vehicle’s description and initiated a traffic stop. The driver failed to yield, resulting in a department-authorized vehicle pursuit until the driver stopped near the 2400 block of Daisy Avenue. The driver exited the vehicle and failed to comply with officers commands. Officers deployed a moderate force option and arrested the driver. The suspect’s vehicle was towed from the scene and the suspect was medically cleared for booking. The suspect was identified as Charlie Arthur Parker, a 40-year-old resident of Long Beach who was booked for one count of attempted murder, one count of evading a police officer with disregard for public safety, one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm, one count of prohibited possession of ammunition, and one count of resisting a public officer. Bail was set at $1,000,000. At this time, the motive for the shooting is still being determined. The investigation is ongoing.
