+susieice Posted January 22 #1 Share Posted January 22 Late Saturday night a gunman described as an Asian male opened fire in a dance hall during a celebration of the Lunar New Year in Monterey Park. About 20 minutes later, an Asian male went into a dance hall in Alhambra with a firearm that patrons were able to take away from him. The suspect fled in a white cargo van. There were 10 killed and 10 injured, 5 of whom are critical. Law enforcement surrounded a white cargo van with a male barricaded inside in Torrence, about 27 miles from Monterey Park. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/10-people-killed-in-mass-shooting-at-dance-studio-near-los-angeles-after-lunar-new-year-celebrations/ar-AA16CjOZ Law enforcement surrounded a white cargo van in Torrance, 27 miles away from Monterey Park, with a person barricaded inside, Luna said. "People have asked, 'Is that your suspect?'" Luna told reporters. "We don't know." Luna said at a briefing that he believed the Alhambra was connected to the Monterey Park shooting but investigators were still looking at all possibilities. The shooting came after thousands of people had gathered for a Lunar New Year Festival in Monterey Park, a small city of about 60,000, about two-thirds of them Asian American. It is about 10 miles east of Los Angeles. Monterey Park's neighboring community, Alhambra, is more than 50% Asian American. 1 4 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
