Photos: Gunman still on the loose after 10 dead in Monterey Park dance studio mass shooting


The gunman who opened fire Saturday night at a Monterey Park ballroom dance studio, killing 10 people and injuring 10 others, remained at large Sunday morning, authorities said.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna said: “We are using all available resources to apprehend this suspect in what we believe is one of the county’s most heinous cases.”

The shooting occurred near the location where tens of thousands had gathered on Saturday for the start of a two-day Chinese New Year festival, one of the region’s biggest holiday events. Sunday’s events have been canceled due to the shooting, authorities said.
