LONG BEACH — A man was shot and killed Sunday night in Long Beach, and a police SWAT team surrounded a residence near the crime scene where the suspected gunman was believed to be holed up.

The shooting happened around 7:30 p.m. Sunday in the 2300 block of Cedar Avenue, according to Long Beach Police Officer Paige White.

Arriving officers found a man suffering from a gunshot wound to the upper body, White said. The officers provided first aid to the victim until paramedics arrived and took him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

“While on scene, officers received information that led them to believe the suspect was possibly barricaded in a nearby residence in the 2300 block of Cedar Avenue,” he said. “Officers established a perimeter, activated SWAT and advised nearby residents to evacuate and/or shelter in place.”
