Hamid Shraifat, 41
Hamid Shraifat, a 41-year-old man of Middle Eastern descent, was shot and killed Sunday, Nov. 2, along with four others at a homeless encampment under the Santa Fe off-ramp of the Long Beach Freeway, authorities said.
Long Beach police said all of the dead were friends who had been socializing with one another for some time.
The bullet-riddled bodies of the three men and two women killed at the site were discovered after an anonymous tipster called police with a terse message: "There's five bodies over by Santa Fe and Wardlow."
