Two people were arrested Saturday night and a search was underway for additional shooting suspects after a man was killed in Redondo Beach, officials said.

Officers responded to the 600 block on North Juanita Avenue around 8 p.m. after receiving several 911 calls regarding gunshots heard in the area, the Redondo Beach Police Department said in a news release.

Police went to the reported residence and found a man with multiple gunshot wounds to the upper torso, according to officials.

The victim was transported to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Responding officers located a vehicle leaving the area, containing the alleged suspects. The suspects then fled from officers in their vehicle, later abandoning it and fleeing on foot.

The suspects are believed to be armed and dangerous, according to the news release. It was not clear how many people authorities were looking for.
