Killer – Huu Can Tran, 72, Vietnamese.

Huu Can Tran was identified as the 72-year-old mass shooting suspect who killed at least 10 people in a Monterey Park, California, ballroom dance studio during a Chinese New Year’s festival celebration, the Los Angeles County Sheriff said in a news conference.

Corporation records obtained by Heavy through the State of California showed that Tran once registered a corporation called Tran’s Trucking Inc. Its registration terminated two years later. He was living in San Gabriel, California, at the time, according to the 2002 filing.

His ex-wife and friends told CNN Tran used to frequent the Star Ballroom Dance Studio where the mass shooting occurred and described him as quick to anger and irritable.

The shooting happened in the heart of downtown Monterey Park where red lanterns decorated the streets for the Lunar New Year festivities. A police car was parked near a large banner that proclaimed: “Happy Year of the Rabbit!”

The Lunar New Year celebration in Monterey Park is one of California’s largest and had attracted tens of thousands throughout the day. Most of the residents of Monterey Park, a city of about 60,000 people that sits at the eastern edge of Los Angeles, are Asian immigrants from China or first-generation Asian Americans.
