Man Dies After Being Found With Gunshot Wounds in Torrance Home Depot Parking Lot

Police are searching for the shooter or shooters that fatally shot a man who was found outside a Home Depot in Torrance late Tuesday night.

Authorities responded to the home improvement store’s parking lot in the 24400 block of Crenshaw Boulevard regarding a shots fired call about 11:38 p.m., the Torrance Police Department stated in a news release.

Arriving officers found a man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds and began life-saving measures, including CPR and a defibrillator, according to the news release.

The unidentified victim was then transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Investigators are hoping surveillance video of the area will help them identify a suspect or suspects. It was also unclear if they fled on foot or in a vehicle.

Officers are investigating reports of an auto theft at a nearby Norms Restaurants location, but could not confirm if the incidents were related.

Anyone with information regarding this incident was asked to call the Police Department at 310-328-3456.
