    Store owner Byron Stefferud suspects a fatal brawl outside a punk-rock concert in Torrance won't taint the community's reputation. Still, he says the fight that left one man fatally shot and another stabbed was "shocking." Police are still looking for those responsible for the attacks.

    A brawl at a punk rock concert in Torrance spilled out into the parking lot and ended with one man fatally shot and another man stabbed, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

    Deputies had initially said two people were shot.

    The incidents happened about 12:15 a.m. Sunday at Alpine Village Center located at 833 Torrance Blvd., said Deputy Irys Alvarez of the Sheriff's Headquarters Bureau.

    "It was extremely busy; there were numerous halls with events going, so there was a lot of people," said sheriff's Lt. Holly Francisco.

    A fight at one of the events, a punk rock show, spilled out into the parking lot. One man was fatally shot by an "unknown assailant," according to the LASD.

    Another man was stabbed, according to deputies.

    "These two incidents of violence are likely separate crimes occurring at the same venue. Each incident is believed to involve a separate suspect," according to an LASD update released Sunday morning shortly after 8 a.m.

    According to deputies, Oxnard-based punk band "Agression" was headlining the event. A Facebook event page also listed "Circle One," "Dirty Rebels" and "Rompe Cabezas" among the acts scheduled to perform.

    Alpine Village Center offers dining, concerts, swap meets and numerous other forms of entertainment.

    Anyone with information about this incident was asked to call the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500.
