Shooting At Torrance Bowling Alley Leaves 3 Dead and 4 Wounded

Torrance, CA– A fight turned deadly at Gable House Bowl on Hawthorne Boulevard early Saturday morning, that left three people dead and four others wounded.

Witnesses say that gun-fire erupted around midnight after a fight that involved first young-women, and then men escalated.

Snapchat video of the incident are circulating Facebook and social media.

Authorities say that the suspect is still at large and a motive has not yet been established.

Three of the victims have been identified as 20-year-old Michael Radford, 28-year-old Robert Meekins and 28-year-old Astin Edwards.

According to the New York Times, Wesam Hamad, 29, said a fight broke out within a group of about 10 men and women behind his lane.

“He told his niece to leave and as they were walking, they heard a series of about 15 gunshots. He ran to the other end of the alley with his niece and his cousin, and they dove behind some couches.

“I still had my bowling ball in my hand. I held my bowling ball behind my niece’s head just in case something ricocheted,” Mr. Hamad said. “We’re just lucky to be alive. I’m still in shock.”

As he was leaving, Hamad said, he saw a woman weeping over a man who was riddled with multiple gunshot wounds in his head and neck (ABC 4).
