Authorities were investigating Friday morning after two men were found dead at a Torrance beach, the Los Angeles County Fire Department said.
The bodies were discovered at about 7 a.m. and Torrance Police Department officers responded to the scene in the 300 block of Paseo de la Playa near Redondo Beach.
The bodies showed no obvious signs of trauma but the cause of death is under investigation, Torrance Police Sgt. Alexander Martinez said.
"This appears to be an isolated incident with no perceived threat to the community," the department said on Twitter.
Video from Sky 5 showed a yellow tarp apparently covering the two bodies on the sand. The area was cordoned off with police tape and officers were seen working at the scene.
Police are working to identify the victims and search the beach for evidence.
The area around Torrance Beach was closed for hours while detectives investigated the scene.
No further details were immediately available.
