May 17, 2000

LONG BEACH — A 19-year-old man was killed and the woman he was with slightly injured early Tuesday morning when shots were fired at the car they were sitting in, police said.

Lamont Halcomb died after being taken to Long Beach Memorial Medical Center. Tina Bennett, 34, was treated for minor injuries and released, authorities said.

Police are looking for two men who opened fire about 2:20 a.m. on the brown Cadillac at Long Beach Boulevard and 20th Street.

The two men were on foot when they approached the car, which was parked in a residential neighborhood, said department spokeswoman Jana Blair. Police said they do not have a motive and have a poor description of the suspects.

They asked anyone with additional information to contact homicide investigators at (562) 570-7244.
