CA: Long Beach Home Invasion ends with 2 of 6 Invaders Shot, Killed

A chaotic break-in at a Long Beach home where police later found drugs and guns ended in violence Saturday afternoon, when the resident shot two men to death after they barged in with four others, who fled.

The incident unfolded at around 5 p.m. in the 3700 block of E. Esther Street, Long Beach police said in a statement. That’s when at least six men broke into a home and attempted to rob a man inside, leading to a scuffle.

The resident pulled out a gun and fired at the men, striking two — one man died inside the house, and another collapsed on the walkway outside. The other men were gone when police arrived, according to the statement.

Police haven’t said why the men broke into the shooter’s house, initially only saying on Saturday that they found guns and “other items” inside the home. On Sunday, officials said that officers served a search warrant at the home and found “large quantities of marijuana, firearms and cash.”
