Three men face charges after an altercation where they may have threatened to use a gun, according to Long Beach Police.

Officers were clearing the beach of a large crowd at about 11 p.m. Wednesday when they received a call of possible gun shots, cops said. All available officers rushed to Edwards Boulevard near East Broadway and separated a throng of people to interview witnesses, police said.

After an investigation, police determined two men from Freeport and Roosevelt had gotten into a fight and may have threatened to use guns, cops said.

No one was injured in the incident.

Two handguns and a 2012 Chevrolet Camaro were confiscated as evidence.

Cops charged Tylek Allen with criminal possession of a firearm and Kareen Edney with criminal trespassing. Derek Pickney was also charged during the incident with unlawful possession of marijuana.

Yes, New York State has a 3 1/2 minimum sentence if your arrested for possession of a firearm. However perpetrators are released over and over on bail They are arrested for possession, released on bail pending trial, arrested again for possession, then released on bail pending that trial. Most of these types are arrested and already out on bail for another crime, or on parole. So they just continue to run amuck until trial, which can take years. This is why jail in this State is a joke. Correctional facilities do not CORRECT criminals. Criminals are NOT afraid of going to jail.

And yet again, this is why Long Beach should not have their own police dept. NCPD should be the force behind the shields. This is happening pretty much on a daily basis now, LBPD is useless for these crimes

It's prosecutors and/or judges not applying appropriate charges or sentences.......not cops

Dem bosses grovel before the North Park criminal's. North park voters will not tell the LBPD anything but the Dem bosses don't care, just so they get the vote. LBPD should have a very thorough "Stop and Frisk" policy and a gunshot detection/location system, plus plenty of HI Res TV cameras covering all of North Park. NP should be heavily patrolled by LBPD at all times. NP is where all of the gun crimes are in LB so that's where all of the cops should be.
