A 57-year-old grandmother was killed and five other people were wounded early Saturday while attending a vigil in the parking lot of a west Long Beach bar for someone who had died recently.

She was later identified as Jacqueline Glasby of Ontario, according to the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.

The five surviving victims were three men and two women, the Long Beach Police Department reported. One woman was listed in critical but stable condition. The other woman went to a hospital for treatment on her own. The three men suffered non-life threatening gunshot wounds, according to police.

The shooting — which involved an unknown number of suspects — occurred at 12:40 a.m. at 1616 W. Pacific Coast Highway in an area that borders an industrial area, said Lt. Abram Yap of the Long Beach Police Department. The location is at PCH and Canal Avenue, a few blocks west of the Long Beach (710) Freeway.

Glasby was pronounced dead at the scene, Yap said. She was a 57-year-old grandmother and mother of two, according to multiple media reports.

Long Beach police homicide detectives asked anyone with information regarding the shooting to call them at 562-570-7244.
