A shooting in Long Beach’s historic Willmore neighborhood late Saturday left one man injured and was one of several shootings that day, police said.

The shooting occurred around 9:50 p.m. in the 900 block of Daisy Avenue, said Lt. James Richardson of the Long Beach Police Department.

Officers responded to the area after a call about shots fired. When they got there, they found a man with a gunshot wound to his lower torso.

The man was treated at the scene for a non-life threatening injury, Richardson said in a statement.

Three other shootings throughout the day left four other people injured.

One of those shootings also occurred on Daisy Avenue, just about a block away from the first. In that shooting, an argument at around 3 p.m. led to gunshots in the 800 block of Daisy Avenue.

There were no injuries in that shooting, according to Richardson — only a building and an uninhabited vehicle were hit.

The argument was between two men, police said in a statement. The shooter fled in a four-door sedan.

The two other shootings on Saturday occurred in North Long Beach, including one that injured three men in the 3300 block of Andy Street at around 6:15 p.m.

Two of the men injured in that shooting were in critical condition on Saturday. Richardson said Sunday that no update on the men’s conditions were available.

Another shooting occurred at around 9:10 p.m., on the north side of the city near the border with Compton, in the 200 block of East Artesia Boulevard.

In that shooting, officers arrived at the reported location, but found no one there. A man who was struck in that shooting took himself to a nearby hospital. He was being treated for a gunshot wound to his upper torso.

All of the shootings — except the Saturday afternoon shooting on Daisy Avenue that began with an argument — drew Long Beach gang investigators. But detectives were not available Sunday to say whether any of the shootings were related.
