US Shooting: Gunman shoots self after killing 10 at Chinese New Year Lunar party; 10 points

Published Date:

Huu Can Tran’s discovery dead inside a van put an end to the search for the suspect in the mass shooting in Los Angeles that left 10 people dead and at least 10 more injured. He reportedly shot himself after being encircled, according to police.

Here are the top 10 takeaways from this major development

  • At a Chinese New Year celebration at Monterey Park in Los Angeles, California, the 72-year-old opened fire yesterday. He was located by police, who then surrounded his van. A gunshot was heard as the officers approached the car.
  • Robert Luna, sheriff of Los Angeles County, stated that the suspect died at the scene after self-inflicting a gunshot wound.
  • The sheriff said that the attack’s motivation was still unknown while reiterating that there are no other suspects in the mass shooting incident. He stated, “The probe is still ongoing.
  • Detectives are currently watching CCTV footage, according to officials, and they are unsure of the suspect’s intentions.
  • Sheriff Luna had earlier questioned: “Who enters into a dance club and shoots down 20 people? We don’t know if this is specifically a hate crime as defined by law.”
  • According to a statement from the White House, US President Joe Biden has ordered that all US flags at government facilities fly at half-staff in memory of the victims of the tragic murder.
  • For the two-day Lunar New Year festival, one of the biggest in southern California, tens of thousands of people had gathered. Following the incident, the festival’s second day was cancelled.
  • The killing, which is the bloodiest in the US since a Texas shooter killed 22 people at an elementary school in May, has once again drawn attention to the nation’s escalating gun violence and the ease with which firearms can be obtained.
  • According to the website Gun Violence Archive, there were up to 647 instances of mass shootings last year, each of which resulted in at least four victims being shot or murdered by the shooter.
  • In the US, more than 44,000 people died from gunshot wounds in 2022, with suicides accounting for more than half of these deaths.
