Monterey Park mass shooting updates: Suspect had hundreds of rounds of ammunition, police say

The 72-year-old suspect has died following Saturday night's mass shooting.

Eleven people were killed and nine others were injured by a gunman who opened fire at a crowded dance studio in Monterey Park, California, on Saturday night, authorities said.

The suspect -- identified as 72-year-old Huu Can Tran -- fled the scene and traveled to nearby Alhambra, where he allegedly entered a second dance hall, where he was disarmed. Tran was found dead on Sunday from a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside a van in Torrance, about 30 miles southwest of Monterey Park, according to police.

Family of 68-year-old victim calls out 'vicious cycle' of mass shootings

Valentino Alvero, a 68-year-old killed in the massacre, “was a loving father, a dedicated son and brother, a grandfather who loved his three granddaughters fiercely,” and “an uncle who loved his nieces and nephews like his own,” his family said in a statement.

“He loved ballroom dancing, he loved his community, and was the life of any party,” the family said.

The family called out the “vicious cycle” of mass shootings, saying, “We became unwilling members of a community who has to mourn the loss of our loved ones due to gun violence.”

The family continued: “It is also a great travesty that he did not receive last rites. He was a devout Catholic and our family would like to request all priests and Catholics to pray for him by name, Valentino Marcos Alvero. Please offer up any Masses or rosaries you can for the repose of his soul. Pray for Valentino by name, and for the souls of all victims of mass shootings and for an end to mass shootings in our nation and our world.”



Diana Tom remembered as 'grandmother who loved to dance'

Diana Tom, 70, who was wounded at Star Dance in Monterey Park died on Jan. 22 after being transported to a hospital in critical condition, her family said.

"On behalf of Diana Tom, we, her family, condemn this senseless act of violence that has uprooted the lives of all the victims, their families and the entire API community at large," the family said in a statement. "We honor and support all of those affected."

The family said Tom was a "hard-working mother, wife and grandmother who loved to dance."

"On the night of January 21, Diana was at Star Dance celebrating the Lunar New Year by dancing with her friends," the statement said. "To those who knew her, she was someone who always went out of her way to give to others."
