A man was killed Friday night after a shooting in the parking lot of a CVS Pharmacy store in Palms, police reported.
Los Angeles police were called to a strip mall around 8 p.m. near Sepulveda and National boulevards. There, they found a man suffering from gunshot wounds.
Police told KTLA two men in a small SUV shot another man near a white car in the parking lot. One witness said he heard three gunshots while ordering dinner near the parking lot.
"I was coming to get dinner over at the taco truck, ordered my dinner and went to sit down in these chairs," said the witness. "As soon as I sat down I heard three very loud shots."
Another witness who works at a nearby Starbucks told KTLA her parents heard the gunshots while they were waiting to pick her up from work.
"My parents were outside waiting for me. So they ... kept calling me, worried, like, 'Are you OK?'" said Nancy Lopez. "I was still here for like another hour and a half."
The parking lot was on lock down while police conducted their investigation, according to the LAPD.
No other information was released.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Los Angeles Police Department at 310-482-6334.
