Death toll in Monterey Park mass shooting rises to 11 as investigators search for gunman's motive

The death toll in Saturday’s mass shooting at a dance studio in Monterey Park, California, rose to 11 on Monday as investigators searched the gunman’s background for an

explanation as to the massacre. Authorities initially said 10 people were killed in the shooting at the Star Ballroom Dance Studio and that at least 10 were hospitalized.

LAC+USC Medical Center, which treated four of the 10 wounded, said Monday that one had died. “Our heroic staff at LAC+USC Medical Center have worked tirelessly to care for

the four victims entrusted to our care. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, we are saddened to share that one of the victims has succumbed to their extensive injuries. We

want to express our deepest sympathies to their families and loved ones,” the hospital said. The additional death comes as investigators pore into the history of the

72-year-old gunman, Huu Can Tran, who opened fire on revelers celebrating Lunar New Year in the majority-Asian American city. FOLLOW LIVE UPDATES Afterward, Tran

went to another dance studio in nearby Alhambra, but was tackled and disarmed by a civilian. He fled the scene and police found him a day later in a white van about 30 miles away

in Torrance, dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The bloody whirlwind transformed one of the most auspicious days of the calendar for Asian Americans into a day of

unfathomable tragedy, yet still one which could have been even deadlier. There are as yet few clues as to the motivation of the shooter, an elderly Chinese immigrant

described as having an interest in dance and a hot temper.
