Monterey Park Shooter Suspected to Have Targeted Ex-Wife


The suspected shooter in Saturday’s dance hall shooting in Los Angeles’ Monterey Park may have been targeting his ex-wife on Lunar New Year, Chantal Da Silva and Corky Siemaszko report for NBC News. Huu Can Tran left 10 dead and 10 wounded at the Star Ballroom Dance Hall on Saturday when he came into the ballroom, fired shots, and then left shortly after, police say. “My understanding is that he may have come because his ex-wife was reveling, celebrating the Lunar New Year, and it sounded like there was a history of domestic violence, which is unfortunate,” Mayor Henry Lo told NBC News.

Tran was 72 years old when he died 12 hours after the massacre due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside a white van. Families and friends of potential victims gathered at Monterey Park’s Langley Senior Center and resource center on Sunday, waiting to hear news of loved ones.
