“The apartment they were searching … we share a wall with them,” said Nash Hurtarte. “They were yelling for quite a while … nobody was coming out.”

Police say they recovered evidence from a nearby parking lot but have not released details about who they were looking for Tuesday or what they found.

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.

Police received a report of shots fired around 3 p.m. Monday at the mall in the 3500 block of West Carson St., according to Torrance Police Department Sgt. Ronald Harris.

Police Officer Craig Durling says it’s believed the attacker fled the mall but most stores were locked down while police conducted a search.

The suspect in the mall shooting is described as a Hispanic male, age 20-25, with a shaved head, wearing a black shirt and checkered shorts. Anyone with information regarding that incident is encouraged to contact the Torrance Police Dept. at (310) 328-3456.

One person was shot at Del Amo Fashion Center in Torrance on Monday, and a search for a suspect is underway.
