Long Beach police shot and killed a man Sunday morning at 5:30 a.m. on the 2100 block of Pine Avenue. The man died at the scene and no other details about the victim or the incident have been released. This event follows the Dec. 12 killing of 35-year-old Douglas Zerby who was fatally shot by Long Beach police while holding a water nozzle mistaken for a gun. Family members "say Zerby may have been intoxicated and have accused police of misconduct," reports LA Now. They intend to pursue legal action including wrongful death claims, reports KTLA.
