A story for every victim

Jacqueline H. Glasby, 57

Jacqueline H. Glasby, a 57-year-old black woman, was shot and killed Saturday, May 18, in the 1600 block of West Pacific Coast Highway in Long Beach, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

About 12:40 a.m., an officer from the Long Beach Police Department was in the area when he heard gunshots, and went to the area.

Officers discovered that six people — three men and three women — had been shot near the West Cocktail Lounge, according to news reports and a statement from the department.

Glasby, of Ontario, was pronounced dead at the scene at 1:02 a.m., according to coroner’s records.

Long Beach homicide detectives believe that the shooting occurred in the parking lot of a business. People had gathered for a vigil for someone who had recently died, police said.

A woman told KTLA-TV Channel 5 that Glasby was her mother-in-law. 

“She was important to us,” Sabrina Neely told the station. “She was all we had. … She was just at the wrong place at the wrong time.”

It is unclear how many shooters were involved.

Police are asking anyone with information about the shooting to contact Long Beach homicide detectives at (562) 570-7244. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
