Long Beach Police are asking for the public’s help with locating Norval Lamount Hartley, a 46 year old resident of Long Beach, in connection with an attempt murder.
On December 27, 2015, at about 12:40 a.m., officers responded to the report of gunshots fired in the area of Willow Street and Maine Avenue. On arrival, officers located a female adult who had sustained a gunshot wound to the upper body. The victim was transported to a local and remains hospitalized in stable condition. The investigation revealed the victim left a local business and was walking to her car when she was struck by gunfire. The victim was not the intended victim of the shooting.
Homicide detectives responded to the scene and during their investigation, Hartley was identified as the suspect. On January 20, 2016, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office filed charges of attempt murder against Hartley and a $3,100,000.00 arrest warrant was issued.
Hartley remains outstanding and should be considered armed and dangerous. He has an extensive criminal history for violent crime and has served time in state prison. He is described as a male African American, 5’-11”, 180 lbs., with a bald head and brown eyes.
