Delhaun Cordell Jackson, a 19-year-old black man, was shot and killed Monday, April 18, in the 1200 block of East 17th Street in Long Beach, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

Police responded to a call of shots fired at 8:43 p.m. in the area and found four wounded men, said Long Beach Police Sgt. Megan Zabel. 

Jackson was pronounced dead at 8:54 p.m. at the scene, according to coroner’s records.

Family members told KTLA that Jackson was the father of a 1-year-old boy. The three other men were taken to hospitals, one in critical condition and two in stable condition.

The shooter remains at large and investigators are unsure if the shooting was gang-related. “Honestly, I don’t know what the motive is,” Zabel said. “We really don’t know what happened.”
