A 22-year-old man was shot outside of the Long Beach Police Department early Sunday morning.
According to Sgt. Eric Cregeen, at approximately 2:30 a.m., a Long Beach Police dispatcher heard what he believed to be three to four gunshots. Within a minute of hearing the shots, a 22-year-old male victim entered the Long Beach Police Department and stated he had been shot.
All available units responded to police headquarters and began canvassing for the shooter, Cregeen said. When police arrived at headquarters, they observed what appeared to be a bullet hole in the glass of one of the precinct doors.
An officer inside of the precinct rendered first aid to the victim and quickly notified the Long Beach Fire Department, Cregeen said.
The victim was transferred to an area hospital where he underwent emergency surgery for two gunshot wounds, Cregeen said. The victim is listed in critical condition.
