Jeff Pouncil, 19, was shot and killed on Jan. 5, was just north of the PCC.

Investigators report Pouncil was walking with a male friend heading north on Orange Avenue near 21st Street around noon when the two were suddenly approached by a gunman who fired several gun shots at both men, Pouncil was struck and mortally wounded, while the other man had time to run away, and escape with no injuries, said, Nancy Pratt, a Long Beach Police Department spokeswoman.

 Pouncil was taken to a nearby hospital with a gunshot wound to the torso and was pronounced dead shortly after arrival. Investigators said they believe it was gang-related, as another 195 reported homicides also were in Long Beach in 2011, according to the Times homicide report database.

Andre Bisserup, 18, a Long Beach resident, was arraigned on Friday, Jan. 26 on a charge of murder. When Bisserup was identified as the suspect, they learned he was already in jail on an unrelated theft charge.

 Bisserup was on probation at the time of the alleged shooting and he is being held at the Men's Central Jail without bail. Bisserup also is being charged with one count of attempted murder for firing shots at Pouncil's male companion, according to the Sherriff's Department's Inmate Information Center.


Anthony Arango, a student from PCC, said, he didn't hear about the shooting, but he


concerned for his safety " I am not worried about my safety, because I know the security and staff won't allow any shooting or accidents to occur here at PCC."
