A 23-year-old man was fatally shot while sitting in a parked car in Long Beach early Tuesday.

As of Tuesday afternoon, police had not identified any suspects or established a motive for the killing of Tyree Latrell Coleman, who was wounded while sitting with another man in a parked car about 2:10 a.m. in the 6200 block of White Avenue, near the Long Beach (710) Freeway.

One or possibly more suspects in another car approached and fired shots into the vehicle, according to the Long Beach Police Department.
