The gunman involved in the Lunar New Year shooting in Los Angeles is confirmed dead by police.
After a SWAT operation by the Special Enforcement Bureau ended a standoff in Torrance, California, the SEB announced that the armed man at the wheel of the cargo van had fatally shot himself. Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna had previously reported the lunar new year shooter was also armed and dangerous. A vehicle of interest at the scene matched the description of the van involved in the standoff.
This shooter killed 10 people and wounded 10 others at a Los Angeles-area ballroom dance club. As a result it became the fifth mass shooting in the U.S. this month and the deadliest since 21 people were killed in a school in Uvalde, Texas, according to The G3 Box News/USA Today database on mass killings in the U.S.
