LOS ANGELES (AP) - Police say one person was killed in a shooting involving a marijuana dispensary in the Westchester area near Los Angeles International Airport.

Los Angeles police Officer Liliana Preciado says the shooting occurred at midday Wednesday following an altercation inside or outside the Nature's Cure Inc. dispensary adjacent to the Westin Hotel on Century Boulevard.

Preciado says officers are searching for a man wearing green pants, a beige shirt and a brown baseball cap who left the scene in a black BMW.

Witness Mark Chappell tells KCAL-TV he saw a dispensary security guard pointing a gun at the BMW driver, who also had a gun. The witness says the guard was loading his weapon.

The shooting has disrupted Century Boulevard access to the airport.
