On Friday, Bryan Gallegos, 25, was shot by detectives who were apparently looking for him in connection with a Sept. 25 homicide.

Gallegos tried to get away from police when he was confronted, and two detectives shot him multiple times, according to the Long Beach Police Department.

He remains in the hospital, police said Monday.

Officials have not released details about what specifically led up to the shooting, but said a gun was recovered at the scene.

Gallegos was booked on suspicion of the September homicide, assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer, felon in possession of a firearm and carrying a concealed weapon in a vehicle, officials said.
