2 men fatally shot after breaking into Long Beach home; 1 suspect knew resident, police say

by: Kristina Bravo, Erika Martin, Steve Kuzj
Two men were shot dead after breaking into the home of a person one of them knew in Long Beach early Tuesday morning, police said.

A resident on the 1000 block of Almond Court, near 11th Street, reported around 12:10 a.m. that he’d opened fire on an intruder, Long Beach police said in a news release.

Officers who responded to the scene found 18-year-old Jose Perez of Long Beach inside the home with multiple gunshot wounds to his upper torso. Sergio Pacheco, a 25-year-old Long Beach man, was found laying in the street with gunshot wounds to his upper torso a few blocks away, on the 1100 block of Gundry Avenue, according to investigators.

Paramedics attempted life-saving measures, but the men died at the scene, officials said.

An earlier statement from Long Beach police provided incorrect information on the locations where officers found the men, police said Wednesday.

Both Pacheco and Perez are considered suspects in the break-in.

Pacheco and one of the home’s residents “were at one time associates,” detectives said in the news release. The Police Department declined to provide further details on the nature of their relationship.

Investigators believe the two slain men arrived at the home unannounced, forced their way in and assaulted two people inside. The resident then grabbed a gun and opened fire, officials said.

Police say Perez collapsed in the street while fleeing the scene.

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio Police responded to calls for a shooting Sunday just after 7:00 p.m. at the 14200 block of Short Horn Drive on the far Northeast side of San Antonio.

When officers arrived at the location, they found a man in his 30s who had been shot multiple times in his body outside of the home and a twenty-something man inside the home who had been stabbed. The shooting victim was taken to SAMMC in critical condition and the stabbing victim was transported to Northeast Methodist in stable condition.

Police say that a man came to the home to collect a debt, then a fight broke out between the two people. The debt collector pulled out a knife and stabbed the homeowner, and then the homeowner pulled out a gun and shot the debt collector three times.

    Have an LCR in .357 but use .38 +P because ouch.
    Laser grip sucks unless you bulid up the button with
    liquid electrical tape. Neat trick but the grip still
    sucks so it’s on my list of things I probably will
    never get to.

    Had one in .22 LR but sold it because not enough bang.
    I heard it was gifted to an elderly woman. Nice.
    You can carry one sans holster in a front jeans pocket
    and nobody gonna know.

    “WW grins.” He’s not the only one. Imma gonna score this one as a full house, Aces and 8s. FIRST time in awhile that we’ve had that kinda score. You know the stabbie had to be a little sketchy, along with the stabbor. Hmmmm? I wonder who was the FIRST to Earn an Aces and 8s on a certain inherwebz contest?

    ‘beans is that a pistol in your pocket, or are you glad to see us?

    Those folks seem to have the drill down: Two to the body, if still attacking one to the head.

    THESE folks remembered their range time. Stuck in Houston, all the ranges are closed right now, ouch! Two itchy trigger fingers!

    One important card to remember… tunless you have a queen kicker, aces and eights is only 4/5 of the real dead man’s hand.

    • 5th/77th FA says:

      Some schools of thought/research/evidence ect have it that Wild Bill actually had 3 Aces, an 8, and the Jack of Spades. Either way, he’s still dead Jim, there is only ONE (1) that has made not only a 5 in a row ACE of FIRST on the TAH Friday Weekend Open Thread, there is also only ONE (1) who has made an unprecedented Eight (8) in a row, AND an Eleven (11) in a row. Therefore The King of Battle holds the ACES and Eight, plus the Jack (11). Game, Set, AND Match to the Winner of Wars.
