Police release photos of Monterey Park mass shooting suspect; 10 died in rampage: Live updates

MONTEREY PARK, Calif. – Authorities on Sunday released photos of the suspect in a shooting rampage that left 10 people dead at a dance club after a Lunar New Year celebration

in this predominantly Asian American community. "Investigators have identified him as a homicide suspect and he should be considered armed and dangerous," the

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said in an Instagram post. It shows a man in glasses and a knit cap, saying he is about 5-feet-10-inches and about 150 pounds wearing a

black leather jacket. Sheriff Robert Luna, speaking at briefing Sunday, said the suspect may have tried to shoot up another club a few miles away but was fought

off by patrons. Start the day smarter. Get all the news you need in your inbox each morning. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said the first

shooting at Star Ballroom Dance Studio in Monterey Park was reported at 10:22 p.m. Saturday. Within minutes police officers from a nearby police station swept into the area. The

fatalities included five men and five women, Luna said. Ten survivors were rushed to the hospital, some in critical condition, he said. Luna said investigators

were probing whether an attempted shooting 20 minutes later at a ballroom in Alhambra, a few miles north of Monterey Park, was connected. Patrons wrestled a gun, which was not an

assault rifle, from a suspect who fled in a van, he said. “We believe that there’s an incident that may be related,” Luna said of the Alhambra incident. "It’s

definitely on our radar screen.”
