“We’re outraged and saddened by the shooting at Royal Palms Beach in San Pedro that has left 5 people injured. It’s tragically ironic that today we hosted a gun buy-back event just a few miles away from this location. Gun violence is wreaking havoc on our community.
Royal Palms Beach will be closed tomorrow and going forward earlier on weekends as we work on plans together to ensure safety and peaceful community use.”
As of Saturday night, officials said that four of the victims were in stable condition and one was still in critical condition.
Officers are looking around the area to see if there are any surveillance videos or cell phone videos of the shooting. The incident is still being looked into.
