Long Beach police officers responded to the 1900 block of Myrtle Avenue about 2:30 p.m. for reports of a shooting.

The victim was found in the vehicle and was taken to a hospital, where he later died, police said.

Officers determined that the shooting occurred in the 900 block of Dayman Street and the victim drove himself to Myrtle where he crashed into a parked car.

Officers surrounded a home along Dayman, where their investigation led, and made attempts to call anyone that was inside.

SWAT officers also responded and surrounded the area and officials were treating the incident as a possible barricaded situation. It is unclear if the person who was arrested had been barricaded inside the home.
