US Mass Shooting At a Dance Studio Recorded 10 Slayed, 10 Wounded

Police line DO NOT cross

A shooter opened fire at a ballroom dance studio in Monterey Park, Los Angeles, in the United States, leaving ten people dead and at least 10 others hurt.

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the incident happened on Saturday night.

The incident took place close to where Chinese New Year festivities were taking place. One of the biggest Lunar New Year celebrations in the area began on Saturday with tens of thousands of people attending.

According to a report by the Los Angeles Times, the mass shooting, one of the bloodiest in California in recent memory, occurred in the 100 block of West Garvey Avenue at about 10:22 p.m., sheriff’s Capt. Andrew Meyer informed reporters on Sunday.

According to the available information, the suspect is a guy who is currently at large. Both a reason for the shooting and the shooter’s identity are unknown.

“When officers arrived on the scene, they saw a large number of people, customers,… rushing out of the establishment, shouting. The officers arrived at the scene and discovered more victims,” Meyer added.

Ten of the victims were declared dead at the spot by firefighters, according to Meyer. At least ten more people were sent to a number of nearby hospitals, and their health statuses varied from stable to critical.

Meyer stated that the victims may not have been specifically targeted. To determine whether the shooting was a hate crime, he argued, was premature. We’ll examine all possibilities, Meyer said.

He claimed that the only description of the used weapon was that it was a gun.

North of Monterey Park, in a neighboring suburb called Alhambra, Meyer said he was aware of some sort of incident. He added: “We have detectives on the scene attempting to identify if there’s a connection between these two instances.”

On Sunday morning, law enforcement personnel were present at the Lai Lai Ballroom & Studio, which is located on the 100 block of South Garfield Avenue in Alhambra. It was unclear if the police activity Meyer mentioned had actually taken place at that location.

Owner of a seafood BBQ restaurant on Garvey Avenue across from the scene of the shooting, Seung Won Choi, claimed that three guys barged into his business and ordered him to close the door.

They warned him that a man carrying a semiautomatic weapon was nearby. They claimed that the shooter carried several rounds of ammo, so when his supply ran low, he reloaded, according to Choi.
