”My heart breaks for the victims of the shooting in Torrance and their loved ones. Thank you to the law enforcement & first responders on the scene. We must do more to address gun violence. Americans should be able to go to a bowling alley and be safe.”
Torrance police released a statement that read:
‘Upon arrival, officers discovered multiple subjects with gunshot wounds inside the location. Officers began life-saving measures which included CPR and the use of a defibrillator.’
The shooting stemmed from a fight that took place between a group of people at the Gable House bowling alley in Torrance, according to witnesses on the scene.
Eyewitness Dana Scott said:
‘There was a big group of people, seemed like they were having fun earlier. People were laughing, having a good time, next thing we know there was a fight and it was the girls. … So they were yelling and cussing and fighting and people were on the floor and then some young men got into the fight.
‘… Probably not even a good minute later, we heard gunshots. People started running to the back of the bowling alley and on the floor and between the lanes and between the cushions and the benches. … It was nothing good to see.’
An investigation is ongoing. At this time, there is no news about any shooter or shooters on the loose.
