Long Beach stabbing, hostage situation ends in officer-involved shooting

Long Beach stabbing, hostage situation ends in officer-involved shooting”

Police are searching for a gunman who shot and wounded another man in Central Long Beach early Monday morning, according to authorities.

The shooting was being investigated and police were trying to determine how the suspect knew the women, Johnson said.

The woman mentioned her attacker was inside a home in the 800 block of Washington Place with another female, Lt. John Kanaley said.

Officials say officers responded late Sunday to a neighborhood in Long Beach, where a woman told them she had been stabbed and another woman was being held against her will.

Officers contained the area and contacted a man who was holding a sharp object to the woman's throat, Johnson said.

"The officers under the circumstances were left with no choice, unfortunately", Johnson said. Officers set up a containment and started giving orders for the suspect to drop the weapon, but the suspect refused. "One officer fired their weapon, striking the suspect in the upper torso, which had an immediate effect, allowing the officer to enter the residence and rescue the hostage". The stabbing victim was transported to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, he said.
