A 57-year-old grandmother was killed and five other people were wounded in a shooting early Saturday while attending a vigil in the parking lot of a west Long Beach bar for someone who had died recently.
The fatal victim was pronounced dead at the scene, said Lt. Abram Yap of the Long Beach Police Department.
Later on Saturday, she was identified as Jacqueline Glasby of Ontario by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.
Family at the scene of the shooting said Glasby was originally from Wilmington, according to KTLA.
The five surviving victims were three men and two women, the Long Beach Police Department said.
One woman was listed in critical condition. The other woman went to a hospital for treatment on her own. The three men suffered non-life threatening gunshot wounds, police said.
The shooting — which involved an unknown number of suspects — occurred at 12:40 a.m. at 1616 W. Pacific Coast Highway in an area that borders an industrial area, Yap said.
Sabrina Neely, who told KTLA she is the woman’s daughter-in-law, said her family is devastated.
“She was just at the wrong place on the wrong time,” Neely told the TV station.”It just doesn’t feel real.”
Long Beach police homicide detectives asked anyone with information regarding the shooting to call them at 562-570-7244.
