A 20-year-old man suspected of shooting and killing a Long Beach resident over the weekend has been taken into custody.
Derome Harper was arrested early Sunday morning in the case that police say began with a dispute between the two men in the 1200 block of Phillips Street.
When Jamal Lindsey, 18, got into a car to leave the scene about 9:10 p.m. Saturday, Harper allegedly opened fire, “striking him multiple times in the upper torso,” according to the Long Beach Police Department.
A woman driving the car flagged down nearby officers, who were conducting an unrelated investigation. The officers rushed Lindsey to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
