California mass shooter kills himself after Lunar New Year attack

The gunman, who killed 10 people and left 10 others injured during Chinese Lunar New Year celebrations, shot himself when he was surrounded by the police on Sunday.

The incident developed 12 hours after the 72 year-old shooter, named  Huu Can Tran carried out the massacre at a dance club  at Monterey Park in California’s Los Angeles.  The shooter died on spot when he shot himself after the police tracked him down to the van and surrounded it.

“The suspect sustained a self-inflicted gunshot wound and was pronounced dead at the scene,” Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna said.

The sheriff, who confirmed that no other suspects are responsible for the mass shooting, is now trying to ascertain the motive behind the attack. “The investigation is still ongoing,” he said.
