The officers also located a person leaving in a vehicle, which sped off and was later abandoned, Freeman said. It was unclear if there were other people in the vehicle.
Police set up a containment area to search for the attackers, who were believed to be armed and dangerous. The perimeter was on Prospect Avenue between Torrance Boulevard and Camino Real in South Redondo Beach and West Torrance, police said.
Residents in the area were asked to stay inside their homes, he said.
One person was later taken into custody and the search continued for another assailant, according to Redondo Beach City Councilmember Nils Nehrenheim.
