US Mass Shooting occurred and cops said that there was no suspect there. The sheriff confirmed that there are no other suspects in the mass shooting incident, and added that the motive for the attack was not yet known.
Police say he apparently shot himself after he was surrounded. The manhunt for the suspect in the Los Angeles mass shooting that left 10 dead and at least 10 others injured came to an end after Huu Can Tran was found dead inside a van.
As the officers approached the vehicle, they heard a gunshot. The 72-year-old yesterday opened fire at a Chinese Lunar New Year party at Monterey Park in California’s Los Angeles. Police tracked him down to a van and surrounded it.
Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna said “The suspect sustained a self-inflicted gunshot wound and was pronounced dead at the scene.”
He said the sheriff confirmed that there are no other suspects in the mass shooting incident, and added that the motive for the attack was not yet known. “The investigation is still ongoing.” Officials have said detectives were reviewing surveillance video and did not yet know whether the suspect was targeting a particular group.
Sheriff Luna earlier said “We don’t know if this is specifically a hate crime defined by law but who walks into a dance hall and guns down 20 people?” US President Joe Biden has ordered all US flags at public buildings to be flown at half-staff to honour the victims of the mass shooting, the White House said in a statement.
The shooting, the deadliest in the US since a shooter in Texas killed 21 people at an elementary school in May, has yet again brought under the spotlight rising gun violence in the country and easy access to firearms. The last year saw as many as 647 incidents of mass shooting, with at least four people shot or killed by a shooter, according to the Gun Violence Archive website.
