A video uploaded to Banning-Beaumont Patch by a witness appears to have captured sights and sounds near the scene of two shootings early Saturday in the 500 block of Beaumont Avenue.
The video shows little, but the audio reveals tense moments that unfolded around the time of the shootings.
Someone can be heard calling a woman's name, then shouting, "Call 911!" and "Right now!" Later someone else can be heard shouting, "Calm down! Calm down!"
The original clip was 59 seconds. Banning-Beaumont Patch edited it to 57 seconds to delete profanities.
According to Darci Mulvihill, a spokeswoman for Beaumont police and the city of Beaumont, the shootings occurred early July 16 outside a nightclub known as "Celebrities."
Mulvihill said Monday afternoon the following was the most recent update on the shootings:
"On July 16, 2011, an officer from the Beaumont Police Department was checking reports of a fight in the 500 block of Beaumont Avenue when he observed a male suspect shooting a male victim, identified as Andy Albarran, age 46 of Beaumont, multiple times.
"The officer ordered the suspect to drop the weapon and after the suspect refused, and believing he was going to continue shooting, the officer shot the suspect.
"Both Albarran and the suspect were transported to a local regional hospital, where Albarran later succumbed to his injuries.
"The suspect has not been arrested pending medical clearance to be booked into a jail facility.
"Following standard protocol, the officer has been put on paid administrative leave and the investigation is being conducted by the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.
"Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Investigator Button with the Sheriff’s Department at (760) 393-3500 or the Detective Bureau of the Beaumont Police Department at (951) 769-8500. Information can also be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or reported anonymously to WeTip at 1-800-78-CRIME."
The name of the suspect shot by Beaumont police had not been released as of 2:30 p.m. Monday. Details of what preceded the shooting had also not been released.
"The circumstances regarding the incident are part of the investigation, which is ongoing, and not being released at this time," Mulvihill said at 2:30 p.m. "Suspect info will be released when he's arrested and charged. His medical condition is not available."
Beaumont police Chief Frank Coe confirmed Monday Mulvihill is the city and police department's lead spokesperson on the shootings.
Cpl. Courtney Donowho of the Riverside County Sheriff's Department said Monday in a phone interview the sheriff's department was investigating both shootings, but Beaumont officials will continue to handle distribution of public information updates on the shooting.
