    Families take legal action against Long Beach police for fatal shootings

    John Del Real, 39, was shot September 26th in East Long Beach by an undercover, plainclothes officer. His family filed a federal lawsuit Monday in which they claim Del Real was lured out of his home and then shot by the officer. An unknown person called Del Real's cell phone several times telling him to go outside, according to the lawsuit. When he got to the back alley of his home, a dark truck pulled up. “A plainclothes LBPD officer…emerged from the truck with his gun drawn,” according to the lawsuit. “At no time did [the officer] identify himself as a police officer. Without warning, [the officer] shot [Del Real] approximately three times, including at least one shot to the back of [Del Real's] head.”


    In the second case, the family of Rialto resident Tyler Woods has filed a claim against the city of Long Beach asking for $10 million. Police shot the unarmed 19-year old last year on the roof of a house. Long Beach police officers pulled over a car for a traffic violation on November 19 around 2:30 a.m. ... But family members said Monday that Woods was patted down after the traffic stop. They said he was trying to surrender before he was shot. “Whether he ran or not, you knew he was unarmed,” his brother Trevor Woods said.
