A shooting that left two people dead and another injured at a bar in Long Beach is under investigation Wednesday.

An officer was flagged down about 12:20 a.m. regarding a shooting inside the Bottoms Up sports bar in the 1700 block of East Artesia Boulevard, Long Beach Police Department spokesperson Shaunna Dandoy said.

“He engaged with the suspect who was shooting inside of the business when an officer-involved shooting occurred,” Dandoy said.

The suspect was believed to be dead inside the building, although it was unclear if he was killed by the officer or from a self-inflicted wound.

Inside the bar, investigators found an unidentified deceased victim and an injured man who was transported to a nearby hospital. The injuries were not considered to be life threatening, Dandoy said.

An investigation is underway to determine who shot the victims and when.

The officer was not injured in the incident, Dandoy said.

Investigators are searching for surveillance video.

There was no word on a motive for the initial shooting. https://ktla.com/2019/10/23/police-respond-to-shooting-at-long-beach-bar-2-people-found-dead-inside-including-suspect/

Suspected Shooter Remains at Large After Exchanging Gunfire With Police: LAPD>

A man who exchanged gunfire with officers who tried to make contact with him while he was walking on a street in Boyle Heights remained at large Wednesday, authorities said.

The pedestrian opened fire at police at First and Gless streets around 10 p.m. Tuesday when the officers tried to stop him, said Meghan Aguilar, a detective with Los Angeles police.

Police fired back at the shooter, who then fled, Aguilar added.

None of the officers were shot, but one suffered a minor injury in the incident, according to LAPD. Police said they don’t know whether or not the man was hurt.

Why the officers tried to contact the man in the first place remains under investigation, Aguilar said.

Officers set up a large perimeter overnight in search of the alleged shooter but were unsuccessful. LAPD described him as a Hispanic man with a tattoo under one eye.

The incident happened near a number of churches and the Pecan Recreation Center.
