LONG BEACH, Calif. (KTLA) -- Officers found two men dead after a resident reported shooting someone who had broken into his Long Beach home, police said Tuesday morning.
The Long Beach Police Department said the officers responded to the 1000 block of Almond Court after receiving the resident’s call.
Upon arrival, police found a man down inside the resident’s home, Long Beach Police Lt. Robert Woods told KTLA. Long Beach Fire Department crews tried to revive the man but eventually pronounced him dead at the scene.
The resident was hospitalized for an unspecified injury, Woods said. He said moments later, officers discovered another man down on the street about a block away from the resident’s home. Police believe that person was also a suspect in the break-in. He was also pronounced dead at the scene.
