Police Seek Gunmen in Long Beach Shootings of 2

Officers evacuated people from a Long Beach neighborhood after gunmen, embroiled in a neighbor dispute, shot a man and a woman.

Long Beach police today sought two gunman who shot their neighbors during a Thursday night fight that boiled over from an ongoing dispute.

Officers were sent to an address in the 1100 block of East Plymouth Street about 11:20 p.m. Thursday on a report of shots fired and found the two victims -- a 41-year-old woman and a 38-year-old man whose names police withheld. The man was more seriously wounded, with multiple bullet wounds to the body, while his girlfriend was shot in the legs, the Press-Telegram reported.

Police said both should live. Police searched an apartment in the complex but no immediate arrests were made. Neighbors told the Press-Telegram the suspects are gang members who pick fights and bully people.

``I don't want to say nobody deserves to get shot, but everybody knows those guys are bad news and not to mess with them," one young woman, who lives in the apartment complex that was searched, told the newspaper.

Anyone with more information concerning the whereabouts of the suspects was asked to call police at (562) 570-7330. Anonymous tips can be sent by text or e-mail to www.tipsoft.com.
