Whittier (CBSLA) A woman was shot dead by a man at a Kohl’s department store in Whittier on Tuesday evening, officials said. The gunman remains loose.
The shooting took place around 5:30 pm at a store in the 15ooo block of Whitwood Lane.
According to Whittier police, when a man pulled out a gun and shot a woman, the man and woman began a dispute near the cash register.
He ran away on foot — leaving behind stunned and afraid customers and workers.
Police said unidentified victims had been sentenced to death on the scene. No one else was injured.
“It was a mess, as I understand it,” said Hugo Figueroa, a spokesman for the Whittier police. “After hearing the gunshots, many went into panic mode and saw the victims lying on the ground.
Police believe that men and women knew each other and that the shootings could have been essentially done domestically.
“She called me crying,” Cole’s worker’s father, Memo Torres, told CBSLA. “She only listens to shots, that’s it. She just heard the gun happening.”
The suspect was only described as a shaved-headed Hispanic man wearing a blue top and blue jeans. It is unknown if police have obtained surveillance photos of the shooting.
