LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA — A resident was surprised to find two people breaking into his home just after midnight on Tuesday, and he didn’t hesitate to defend himself.

Officers who responded to the scene found 25-year-old Sergio Pacheco of Long Beach inside the home with multiple gunshot wounds to his upper torso. Jose Perez, an 18-year-old Long Beach man, was found laying in the street with gunshot wounds to his upper torso a few blocks away, on the 1100 block of Gundry Avenue, according to investigators.

Police say the two men entered the residence uninvited and began assaulting two people inside. One of the suspects knew a resident, police say, but would not elaborate on the relationship.

After the assault began, one of the residents grabbed a gun and started firing. Both suspects were found by police when they arrived, deceased.

One resident was taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries.

No matter the time of day, having a clear head and plan of action is important, because we never know when the bad guys are going to pay a visit.
