The incident occurred shortly after 3 pm at Century Village on the Cabrillo Complex on San Gabriel Avenue.
A gray SUV appears to have collided with a guard and a gate structure near the entrance to the complex. Paramedics declared him dead on the scene.
Police said the driver had escaped from the scene on foot and the arrest had not been announced until late Saturday night.
Steve Colman, Executive Director of Century Villages in Cabrillo, said:
“We are deeply saddened by this tragic event and are fully cooperating with the Long Beach Police in our efforts to identify the driver.”
