Police in Torrance warned the public on Sunday to avoid the Del Amo Fashion Center after they received a report of gunshots within a large crowd of minors fighting in the area.
The Torrance Police Department (TPD) said it received a call around 4 p.m. Sunday of a large crowd of juveniles fighting amongst themselves at the mall. Neighboring police departments were asked to assist in the response due to the size of the crowd in question.
A witness told officers there was one firearm fired from the crowd. It is unclear how many minors were involved in the fight or if any injuries were reported.
The City of Torrance urged the public to “please avoid the area” of the shopping plaza due to the police activity. It is unclear when the advisory will be over.
Details on what led up to the fight were not immediately available.
No arrests were announced in connection with the incident. The investigation is ongoing.
