Long Beach, California — On May 30, 2023, at approximately 11:56 a.m., officers were dispatched to the area of Livingston Drive and Park Avenue regarding a report of a stabbing. Police Dispatch received numerous calls for service, with calling parties describing a male adult suspect, armed with a knife, actively assaulting and stabbing people. Officers arrived within five minutes of the initial call for service. Upon arrival, they located the suspect, identified as 31-year-old Mario Najara, experiencing homelessness. Najara was armed with a screwdriver. Officers attempted to de-escalate the situation; however, Najara began walking away from them. Officers continued to talk with Najara in an attempt to get him to drop the weapon, however, he then attempted to enter a residential property, at which point the officer-involved shooting occurred. Najara sustained a gunshot wound to the upper body. Officers rendered medical aid until the arrival of the Long Beach Fire Department, who transported Najara to a local hospital in stable condition.

The preliminary investigation indicates Najara was involved in three separate incidents prior to officers’ arrival.

— Najara physically assaulted a female adult and a male adult victim in the area of Park Avenue and Livingston Drive. Both victims were treated at the scene by Long Beach Fire for lacerations.
— Najara continued walking into Livingston Park and approached a male adult victim holding a child. The suspect assaulted the adult causing the adult and child to both fall to the ground. While the adult victim was on the ground, Najara stabbed him multiple times in the lower body. Both the adult and child were treated at the scene by Long Beach Fire.
— Najara continued walking towards 2nd Street where he encountered an additional male adult victim. He stabbed the victim in the upper body. This victim was transported to a local hospital by Long Beach Fire for a non-life-threatening injury.

Officers later learned the suspect was armed with a screwdriver; it was recovered at the scene of the officer-involved shooting. Najara has been charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, two counts of assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury, and one count each of attempted murder, robbery and resisting, delaying or obstructing a peace officer. Bail has been set at $1,000,000. The stabbing victims, meanwhile, all sustained non-life-threatening injures.

  1. Multiple points to make here…
    1. Every American citizen should buy a firearm today or a "non-lethal" alternative for self protection.
    2. The police are not going to save you… Your only hope is to save yourself.
    3. This P.O.S. likely has a rap sheet a mile long littered with violent and serious felony convictions and yet here he is walking around free as a bird stabbing whomever he pleases.
    4. The first officer did a fine job of observing the "Twenty One Foot Rule" and thus kept himself safe yet let this violent predator get within striking distance of several citizens putting them in danger of being assaulted and/or taken hostage while politely begging the predator to "be a good boy and play nice".
    5. Why was this whole scenario allowed to happen here? The policies of Ca. GAVIN NEWSOM and the "woke" leftist Democratic Party has emptied the prisons in California and tied the hands of the police to the point where they can't even do their job without fear of retribution… Please note that GAVIN NEWSOM will be running for President next year and he bring these policies to your state.

    Am I right or am I wrong?
