TORRANCE, Calif. (AP) - Police in Torrance have nonfatally shot a woman shoplifter.
Sgt. Bernard Anderson says security guards at a Marshalls store called police around 8:30 p.m. Saturday to report two shoplifters.
Officers arriving at the scene saw two women trying to leave the store with merchandise.
One woman was arrested, but the other got into a waiting car driven by a third woman who struck the officer with the car while driving away.
Anderson says at least one officer opened fire, striking one of the suspects.
Following a vehicle chase, one woman escaped and the other was eventually found with a nonfatal gunshot wound and taken into custody.
