The shooter in the Monterey incident that left 10 people dead and 10 others injured has been identified by California police
The culprit in the mass shooting that took place in a ballroom on Saturday during Lunar New Year celebrations in California has been named by authorities. The shooting left 10 people dead and 10 more injured.
The culprit was identified many hours after he shot and killed himself in a white van in Torrance, some thirty minutes away from the shooting scene in Monterey Park. The suspect had used the same van to escape the shooting on Saturday night, according to the authorities.
Before entering the van earlier on Sunday, law enforcement officers encircled it with tactical vehicles and bomb squad trucks. A weapon was among the evidence discovered inside the van, according to Luna, which connected the suspect to the crime site.

No other suspects are still at large, according to Luna, and the neighborhood is “no longer under threat.” Authorities claim that the investigation is ongoing but have not given a reason.
According to Luna, seven patients are still hospitalized. Although he was unsure of the victims’ exact ages, he noted that they all seemed to be older than 50.
What was the shooter’s motivation, which is still a question in my mind? He was mentally ill, wasn’t he? Was he a perpetrator of domestic abuse? How did he obtain these weapons, and was it legal or not? At a news conference held outside Monterey Park City Hall on Sunday evening, Congresswoman Judy Chu and Luna both spoke.
According to Luna, five women and five men were killed in the incident at the Star Ballroom Dance Studio in Monterey Park, and ten more were injured. A man with a gun then entered the nearby Alhambra’s Lai Lai Ballroom 20 to 30 minutes later.
According to Luna, the suspect entered the Alhambra club with a gun and was confronted by clubgoers, who removed the gun from him before fleeing. The bulk of the 60,000 people that live in Monterey Park, on the eastern fringes of Los Angeles, are Chinese immigrants or first-generation Asian Americans.
Monterey Park is hosting one of California’s largest events. An estimated 100,000 people had previously attended the planned two days of festivities. Authorities, however, canceled Sunday’s festivities in response to the shooting.
The incident occurred at Star Ballroom Dance Studio on Garvey Avenue, a key thoroughfare in Monterey Park. Garvey Avenue is flanked by tiny shopping centers featuring English and Chinese signage. Chinese holidays are observed, Cantonese and Mandarin are widely spoken, and Chinese film screenings are held on a regular basis.
