In this article you will read about Monterey Park Shooting Reddit .
Following a Lunar New Year celebration in Los Angeles, a gunman shot and killed 10 people at a Los Angeles ballroom dance club. This triggered a manhunt for him in connection to the latest mass shooting in America.
Capt. Andrew Meyer, Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, stated that the injured were taken to hospitals on Jan. 22, and that their condition ranges from stable to critical. He stated that the victims were killed on the spot in Monterey Park.
Meyer stated that people were “pouring out from the location screaming” when officers arrived at the scene around 10:30 p.m. Meyer said that officers went into the dance hall to treat the injured while firefighters took care of the rest.
Luna identified the 72-year-old man as Huu Can Tan. However, the question of why he was involved in the attack at Monterey Park’s dance hall that left 10 people dead and 10 injured remains.
Luna stated that “We are still not clear on the motive,” at a Sunday evening news conference. “We want to find out.”
Sources familiar with the investigation stated earlier that the white van-carrying person subject to a Torrance traffic stop, which is about 30 miles away from the violence, matched the description of someone seen at crime scenes in Monterey Park or Alhambra.
Luna stated that authorities believe that the deceased suspect was indeed seen at both locations.
Luna stated that SWAT officers and authorities surrounded the van and broke into it. The person was then found dead in the late afternoon. He said that plates on the vehicle were “not appropriate for it.”
Luna stated that a search of the van revealed “several pieces evidence” linking the suspect with crime scenes in nearby San Gabriel Valley cities. He also said that a handgun was also found inside the van.
Luna stated that Monterey Park officers responded first to a call about a dancing hall. The incident occurred after police received reports of a shooting at 10:22 on Saturday. As officers entered the business, people were running out of the venue.
“After he had conducted the shooting, the suspect went to Alhambra and was disarmed by two community heroes. They saved lives. Luna said that it could have been worse. “Gun violence must stop. It’s just too common.
Luna said that the weapon he recovered at the second scene he described as a magazine fed semi-automatic assault gun. He also noted that he doesn’t believe that this weapon is legal in California.
The streets were decorated for the Lunar New Year celebrations. An officer car was parked next to a large banner that read: “Happy Year of Rabbit!”
California State Assembly member Mike Fong stated Sunday that “during the time of celebrations, during Lunar New Year, when families are together, we know our community has suffered a tragic event.”
There were two days of celebrations planned, which in previous years attracted as many as 100,000 people. Officials cancelled Sunday’s festivities after the shooting.
This tragedy was the fifth mass murder in the United States since the beginning of the year. According to the database of mass murders in the U.S. by The Associated Press/USA Today, it is the most deadly since May 24, 2022 when 21 people were murdered in a Uvalde school.
