    As investigators combed Southern California for anything to help explain the deadliest U.S. mass shooting in months, more than 100 mourners gathered Monday night at a vigil in Monterey Park that served as a sober contrast to the season’s usual Lunar New Year celebrations. Gathering in the small public park in front of the civic center, they stood silently absorbed in the grief that had brought them together. Strangers now linked in sorrow, they sought solace and solidarity in one another’s company and in the tacit belief that the aftermath of tragedy should not be experienced alone. Chuching Wang, president of the Taiwan Benevolent Assn. of California and co-organizer of the vigil, said the idea for the gathering came after speaking with friends who described their frustration that a time of joy and family during the Lunar New Year had been overshadowed by the shooting. He felt it was better to gather together as a community. “It’s kind of like part of the coping process,” he said. California ‘I was gonna die here’: How a man disarmed the Monterey Park...
    A neon sign flashed “Open” at the Lai Lai Ballroom & Studio in Alhambra on Monday afternoon, less than two days after an attempted attack at the business by a man authorities say gunned down 11 people at a Monterey Park dance studio. But the doors of the business remained locked to the public. The studio’s parking lot was sparsely filled with employee vehicles and television news vans. Almost no evidence remained that a potentially violent event had occurred less than 48 hours earlier, except for a small patch of fence secured with yellow police tape. “In observance of the tragedy at Star Dance last night, Lai Lai ... will reopen Monday for lessons only,” the studio posted Sunday on Facebook. “As an extra precaution, all students and teachers are subject to search prior to entering the studio. Our prayers go out to the victims families.” The night before, an armed man made his way into the Star Ballroom Dance Studio in Monterey Park in a hail of gunfire. When he left a few minutes later, 10 people were dead...

    Tsay, whose family has run the Alhambra dance hall for generations, told CNN that he heard the "distinct sound of metal." "He was looking at me and looking around, not hiding that he was trying to do harm. His eyes were menacing," Tsay recounted to the New York Times. "From his body language, his facial expression, his eyes, he was looking for people." For a fleeting moment, Tsay reportedly froze. He reckoned, "Im going to die. This is it. This is the end for me." "But then something happened," Tsay said. "Something came over me." The young man decided to rewrite his ending on the fly. Tsay reportedly lunged toward the gunman in hopes of disarming him. The battle over the modified pistol reportedly lasted for nearly a minute, but Tsay suggested it felt like "way longer." In newly released footage of the melee, Tsay can be seen grabbing the barrel of the weapon and then finally besting the gunman, despite catching repeated punches to the head and upper body:\u201cBREAKING: Surveillance video shows 26-year-old Brandon Tsay wrestling a gun away...

    A desperate daughter is still hoping to find her mother who has not been seen since a gunman opened fire in a California dance studio on Saturday night, killing ten people. Juno Blees said her father Jeff Liu was hospitalized with gunshot wounds after he and his wife Nancy went to the Ballroom Dance Studio in Monterey Park to celebrate Lunar New Year. Mr Liu, 62, who was released from hospital yesterday, saw his wife, 63, collapse shortly after the attacker, Huu Can Tran, stormed into the crowded room and started firing indiscriminately.

    Star Ballroom Dance Studio is where international ballroom competitors teach their moves. Where retirees learn how to waltz, tango and samba. Where elderly and middle-aged couples while away Saturday nights. Where they feel safe. And happy. “They’re mainly just there to enjoy life and hang out and have fun,” said 40-year-old Elizabeth Yang, who has taken ballroom classes at the studio for a year. All that changed late Saturday night on the eve of the Lunar New Year, a time to welcome prosperity, health and good luck. The studio had scheduled a Lunar New Year’s Eve party for 8 p.m. Saturday. It was supposed to end at 12:30 a.m. Sunday. A message in the dance studio’s WeChat group advertised a “Chinese New Year Countdown Dance Party,” with games and a photo booth. But around 10:20 p.m., 72-year-old Huu Can Tran, armed with a semiautomatic pistol, stormed into the studio. The shooting began. The celebration stopped. And moments later, 10 people were dead. At least 10 others were injured. The community was left reeling as the motive...

    Eric Ching didn’t know anyone who had been hurt in Saturday night’s mass shooting at a Monterey Park dance studio, but he made his way to a local senior center Sunday morning to see whether there was anything he could do to help. The city, which has for decades been a gateway for Chinese immigration, has always been a quiet community, he said, where he “could go out at 12 a.m. and literally feel safe.” “But now that’s just kind of been shattered,” Ching said. His voice cracked as he described the mass shooting, which left 10 dead and 10 others injured. “I’ve never seen a freaking gun in Monterey Park,” Ching said. “But it was here and it took the lives of 10 people, and another 10 are in the hospital right now fighting for their lives.” California Driver found dead after authorities breach van linked to Lunar New Year mass shooting Police cars surrounded the vehicle in Torrance on Sunday morning and shots were fired, law enforcement sources told The Times.

    On Saturday afternoon, thousands were celebrating the Lunar New Year festival in Monterey Park, a city at the heart of Los Angeles County’s Chinese community. The festival ended around 9 p.m. An hour later, gunfire erupted inside a dance ballroom on Garvey Avenue, which is near where the festival took place. Here is what we know about the mass shooting that left 10 dead and 10 wounded:What happened inside the ballroom? Few details have emerged.
