10 dead in shooting in Monterey Park, Calif., body found in van linked to suspect

The suspected gunman who allegedly shot 20 people, 10 fatally, at a dance studio near a Lunar New Year celebration in the Los Angeles suburb of Monterey Park is possibly

connected to a van law enforcement officers surrounded Sunday and forced their way into about 30 miles from where the massacre occurred, authorities said. SWAT officers

broke the driver's side window of the van around 1 p.m. local time, about two hours after police made a traffic stop in the Los Angeles County city of Torrance and heard a loud

noise coming from inside the vehicle, sources told ABC News. The suspect, whose name has not been released, is believed to have been inside a white cargo van, police

officials told ABC station KABC. Live aerial footage showed the van sandwiched between two police armored vehicles, Torrance police officials told KABC. Law enforcement

officials told ABC News that when tactical teams accessed the van, they found a dead man believed to have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. They are currently working to

determine a positive ID and whether or not he was the man being sought in connection with last night's mass shooting, the officials said. Los Angeles County Sheriff

Robert Luna said earlier it has not been confirmed that the suspect in the mass shooting was the suspect holed up inside the van in Torrance. "We don't know," Luna said

at a news conference Sunday afternoon as the incident in Torrance continued to unfold. "We believe there is a person inside of that vehicle. Could it be our suspect? Possibly."
