Re "Shopper Killed in Shootout at Van Nuys Costco," Aug. 14. When I read LAPD Lt. [Jim] Grayson's comment, "It was a totally wanton disregard for the welfare of the people who were out there," I agreed completely, although perhaps not in the sense the lieutenant intended. The armored car personnel who engaged those robbers in a gun battle in a crowded parking lot were extremely irresponsible. Whoever trained and / or instructed those personnel to "draw and shoot" when faced with armed robbers, regardless of the location or the presence of crowds of innocent bystanders, was equally negligent.

Developer Rick Caruso has wooed Nordstrom away from the rival Glendale Galleria and will bring the department store to his Americana at Brand shopping center in fall 2013. To accomplish the move, Caruso is buying Nordstrom's building from the Seattle retailer. Although most of the Galleria is owned by General Growth Properties, it's common for major department stores to own their own real estate within a mall. Caruso wouldn't say how much he is paying for the Nordstrom building, located in a wing across Central Avenue from the original mall.
