Shots were fired during a bank robbery involving four suspects in Culver City Thursday morning, prompting a massive police response.

The armed robbery was reported at One West Bank, located at 10784 Jefferson Blvd, around 9 a.m. The suspects went into the bank, and there was an altercation with a security guard.

Shots were fired, shattering a glass window, but no one was injured, police said.

The suspects fled in a vehicle down Jefferson Boulevard. Authorities say one person was arrested after a short foot pursuit.

Then a nearby T.J. Maxx store was evacuated as police searched for the suspects. Investigators say one person was detained outside the store.
