Live updates: Police investigate Monterey Park shooter’s weapons, history; motive unknown

Investigators are delving into the history of the shooter who killed five men and five women inside a dance hall in Monterey Park, Calif., as the community grapples with the

mass killing in the Los Angeles suburb on the eve of the Lunar New Year. In the aftermath of the shooting, which left at least 10 others injured, Huu Can Tran’s motive

remained unclear, Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna said. Tran shot and killed himself as law enforcement officers closed in on him after a manhunt. The shooting,

which happened shortly after the majority-Asian city’s Lunar New Year celebration, initially raised fears of a hate crime. Although that was not ruled out, officials said Tran was

of Asian descent. Questions also remained about the weapon Tran used, as Luna said law enforcement had recovered a semiautomatic pistol that he did not think was legal in

California, which has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation.
