Monterey Park shooting: Suspect at large after shooting near LA kills 10 – Stigmatis

“It appears to have happened at a dance studio nearby where a gunman came in with what an eyewitness described as a machine gun, some automatic gun that fired multiple rounds at mostly Asian-Americans,” Jeong Park, a reporter with the paper, told the BBC. An eyewitness told him that someone fled in a car minutes later. Others attending the festival said they heard sounds which appeared to be fireworks, which struck them as unusual. “And then I knew for a fact it was not fireworks when I heard the helicopter up above. Because we never have helicopters around here,” one man, Gabriel, told Reuters. The annual Lunar New Year festival in Monterey Park is a weekend-long event that has previously drawn crowds of more than 100,000 visitors.
