Shooter kills 1 and himself in Long Beach ‘workplace violence’
Earlier active shooting incident in LB is now a murder investigation. Suspect is also believed to be deceased at the scene.— Long Beach PD (CA) (@LBPD) December 30, 2017
The Long Beach Police Department described the area as a "very active crime scene" hours after the shooting incident ended just before 3:00pm local time. The suspect and a victim are dead, police said. Officers did not encounter an active shooter, officials said, implying that the suspect committed suicide.
A second victim was wounded and drove himself to a hospital before police arrived. The shooter and both victims were male employees of the law firm.
Apparently there is mass shooting inside the building. Saw 3 people rushing outside screaming “shooting inside”. Police blocked the area. Shooter still inside. Nothing is clear yet. #LongBeach#California#shootingpic.twitter.com/WQ4X878GCn— Basileus Zeno (@BasileusZeno) December 29, 2017
Police searched the law firm where the shooting occurred and also checked a satellite office elsewhere in Long Beach. A stretch of Long Beach Boulevard has been shut down, while both directions of Carson Street have been closed as well.
