Someone called a hospital where Monterey Park shooting victims were being treated and said they wanted to 'finish the job,' sheriff says

10 people have died at a mass shooting at a Lunar New Year celebration in California. An unnamed person threatened victims of the Monterey Park shooting, sheriffs said on

Sunday.  The caller said they would "finish the job" according to Los Angeles Sheriff Robert Luna.  An unnamed individual threatened victims of the shooting in Monterey Park,

California, by calling the hospital where they were being treated, Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna said at a Sunday press conference. At least 10 people were killed

and 10 others were injured after a mass shooting took place a few miles east of downtown Los Angeles on Saturday night during Luna New Year celebrations. Luna declined to

answer a reporter's question about which hospitals the victims were being treated at, explaining: "It is normal that when we have victims of violent crime, we don't talk about

specific hospitals and I'm going to share just a quick story as to why we don't."—Acyn (@Acyn) January 22, 2023 "Earlier I may have mentioned that they were at a specific

hospital, and somebody called one of those hospitals to say something along the lines of 'they want to go and finish the job,'" Luna said, adding that the call was "absolutely

horrible." It was not immediately clear if the caller was the initial shooter or connected to the shooter. Monterey Park is a primarily Asian community, with more than

65% of the city's population identifying as Asian, according to police data. The shooting occurred as people gathered for an annual festival marking the Lunar New Year, the city's

website states.
