Northbound 405 Freeway closed in Torrance for shooting investigation

A section of the northbound 405 Freeway is closed in Torrance amid a shooting investigation Thursday afternoon.

Authorities responded to the freeway at Crenshaw Boulevard around 9:30 a.m. for a report of a person being shot, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The victim was later waiting for officers on 182nd Street and Crenshaw Boulevard, but it is unclear if the person was struck or transported to a hospital. The scene at that location was still active hours later, as patrol cars and crime scene cordoned off a parking lot with a motorcycle in it.

The CHP shut down the northbound side of the highway from the Western Avenue exit to the Crenshaw Boulevard exit, officials said.

It is unknown how long the freeway might be shut down, but traffic was backed up for miles on the highway, aerial video from Sky5 showed.
