We must stand up to bigotry and hate wherever they rear their ugly heads…

The gunman was identified as 72-year-old Huu Can Tran (1950 – January 22, 2023), who was an immigrant from China.
Monterey Park massacre that left 10 dead after gunman’s rampage inside a dance studio was triggered by his ‘jealousy’ after ‘a domestic dispute’: Killer Huu Can Tran, 72, was ‘hostile and quick to anger’
Huu Can Tran, 72, (middle) who killed 10 people at Star Ballroom Dance Studio in Monterey Park, California on Saturday, was remembered as being hostile toward his students and quick to get angry with his ex-wife. Tran died on Sunday (body left) from a self-inflicted gunshot wound during a standoff with police ending a manhunt that started the night before with a deadly rampage. A person who knew Tran said that he was ‘hostile to a lot of people’ at the studio where he taught and believed they said ‘evil things about him.’ Tran’s ex-wife, who didn’t want her identity revealed, said he became easily angered when she messed up on choreography and she felt as if he had lost interest in her. Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna said Sunday that a motive for the attack is still unclear. The mass shooting in Monterey Park left five women and five men dead and wounded another 10 people, of which seven remained in hospital Sunday night.
