A Long Beach police officer shot a man in the leg Saturday night after the man attacked the officer, who was chasing the man in an attempt to stop him for traffic violations, authorities said. Police said the man punched the officer several times and then tried to grab his gun before the officer fired. Authorities identified the man as Luis Perez, a 25-year-old from Long Beach. Perez was hospitalized but is expected to survive, according to authorities. The officer wasn’t seriously injured.
After a trial that included jailhouse recordings of two Watts gang members bragging about gunning down five people, one of the men was sentenced to life in prison without parole on Thursday for what remains one of Long Beach’s worst mass slayings. Moments before hearing his fate, 32-year-old Max Rafael proclaimed his innocence, saying his only sin in this case was loyalty. “I’ve been loyal to a lifestyle that never gave me anything,” he said.
Firefighters quickly doused a blaze that charred a row of garages behind a small apartment building in Long Beach Wednesday morning. The flames broke out at the one-story complex near the intersection of Lemon Avenue and E. 17th Street around 10:10 a.m., according to fire officials. A crew from the Long Beach Fire Department just happened to be across the street when the blaze sparked, Battalion Chief Aaron Miles said.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
