    The event occurred at the Burlington Coat Factory store in North Hollywood, where officers went in response to an alert call about a possible assault with a deadly weapon and subsequent warnings about shooting at the store. The agents found a subject who was trying to assault another person, so opened fire on the attacker, who died in the place. Later, in an inspection of the store, a 14-year-old girl was found who was staying in a fitting room and was hit by a projectile that went through one of the walls. The minor, whose identity was not disclosed, also passed away. Another woman who is presumed to be the victim of the assailant was taken to a hospital with injuries.

    Los Angeles Police Capt.Stacy Spell told reporters that They are in the “preliminary stages of the investigation”, which will include, as anticipated, interviews with witnesses and review the videos of the body cameras of the police officers who participated.
