Long Beach police shot and killed a man Sunday afternoon shortly after responding to a call from the Belmont Shore area about a man brandishing a gun.

The shooting took place shortly after 4:40 p.m. in the courtyard of an apartment complex on the 5300 block of East Ocean Boulevard, said Sgt. Rico Fernandez of the Long Beach Police Department.

The victim was an adult male. No officers were injured in the incident.

No further details were available and the shooting is under investigation by the homicide division and Los Angeles County district attorney’s office, as is standard with officer-involved shootings, Fernandez said.
