Los Angeles Times reported, "The scene was chaotic outside the bowling alley, which is at 22501 Hawthorne Blvd. Slowly but gradually, people gathered behind the police tape were hearing that someone they knew was inside or had been killed."

Jesus Perez of San Pedro, who was present at the venue,  told the US newspaper: "We just ran right into the bar and took cover. All we heard was just, like two people got shot."

He said he heard four gun shots.

"We heard there was a big fight before that. We just ran into the bar and we just took cover because after the fight we heard ‘pop! pop!," he said.
