About 200 people participated in a 9-mile march from Downtown to North Long Beach Friday calling for unity amongst neighbors following a recent wave of violent incidents.
This is the second shooting on that block in three days, but police do not yet know if they are connected.
Despite the increase in positive cases, hospitalizations and fatalities are still relatively stable.
For the last few weeks the city has been testing more than 1,000 people each day at its five testing locations.
Officers arrested the suspect during a traffic stop near Atlantic Avenue and the 91 Freeway at about 4:30 p.m. Monday.
This follows multiple shootings over the weekend, including one that killed a man last night about a half mile from this incident, near South Street and Orange Avenue.
He crashed into several parked cars near First Street and Livingston Drive, officials said.
Long Beach’s positivity rate is at 10.8%, a jump from 8.4% last week and the 6% range weeks ago.
Police do not yet have a suspect description or know the reason for the shooting.
The reopenings continue even as the number of new daily cases of coronavirus have jumped state and countywide.
