One person was killed and at least three others were wounded Tuesday in a shooting near a polling place in Los Angeles.

Police were dealing with at least one suspect who was heavily armed, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Capt. Jeff Scroggin told The Los Angeles Times.

"This is a very volatile and critical situation," Azusa Police Department Officer Jerry Willison told the Times. It was not immediately clear whether any officers were injured, he said.

The shooting occurred about 2:15 p.m. local time in a residential neighborhood in Azusa, the Times reports.

The shooting occurred near a polling place in the area, police said.

Local schools and daycare centers were put on lockdown, according to authorities.

Roberto Chavez, 67, told the Times that they saw a heavily-armed man fire at least 10 rounds as they sat outside on the porch of their home.

The gunman wore a white shirt and black pants — and he ran into another home in the neighborhood, Chavez said.

"It's a very dangerous situation," he said.
