TORRANCE (CBSLA) — Police swarmed a Torrance neighborhood this afternoon near the scene of Monday’s shooting at the Del Amo Fashion Center.
A spokesperson for the Torrance Police Dept. said a suspect was outstanding but would not confirm if the search was related to Monday’s shooting at the Del Amo Fashion Center that left one person wounded, prompted a massive police response and the lockdown of a nearby school.
