On Thursday, March 28, 2013, at approximately 9:15 p.m., Long Beach Police responded to a shots fired call in the 200 block of E. Hill Street , which resulted in the death of a male adult.
When officers arrived, they discovered three male subjects who had sustained gunshot wounds. One of the victims was struck in the upper body and was pronounced deceased at the scene. He has been identified as 19-year-old Sidney Wallace Jr. of Los Angeles.
The two other victims, ages 37 and 49 and both from Long Beach, had received injuries that appeared to be non life-threatening and were transported to a local hospital for treatment.
The preliminary investigation determined that the victims were standing in a parking lot adjacent to an apartment complex when approached and fired upon. No suspect(s) description is available at this time, and it is unclear whether the suspect(s) then fled the area in a vehicle or on foot.
The shooting is being investigated as possibly gang-related.
