Westfield Century City Mall on Lockdown Due to ‘Possible Man With a Gun,’ Police SayThe Westfield Century City Mall is on lockdown due to a “possible man with a gun,” the Los Angeles Police Department said. No one has been reported shot.

He said he saw four or five police officers with assault rifles canvassing the area. He provided the following video of people at the restaurant, checking their phones for updates and hoping for an all-clear:
