One man was wounded, but is in stable condition, following what appears to be a gang-related shooting that took place last night outside a Chuck E. Cheese in Torrance, according to CBS. The victim had multiple gunshot wounds to the torso area. Most witnesses fled the scene, but officers have determined about 8-10 alleged gang members had been fighting in the parking lot. Torrance police Sgt. Jeremiah Hart shares many people's surprise about the location of the violence: “[Chuck E. Cheese] is a place for families and kids.”
