Ten people were killed, and another 10 were injured in a mass shooting late Saturday in Monterey Park following a Lunar New Year celebration that attracted thousands.
The suspect was identified Sunday evening by Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna as 72-year-old Huu Can Tran. Luna confirmed he was dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. There are no outstanding suspects.
According to authorities, at approximately 10:22 p.m., officers from the Monterey Park police department responded to a “shots fired” call at a dance studio on the 100 block of West Garvey Avenue in Monterey Park.
“When officers arrived on scene, they observed numerous individuals – patrons of the location – pouring out of the location, screaming,” said Capt. Andrew Meyer of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Ten of the victims were pronounced deceased at the scene. They were described as five males and five females. Their identities have not been released. Of the injured, there were at least 10 additional victims who were transported to various hospitals, including LAC+USC Medical Center, and were listed in various conditions from stable to critical.
