At least 10 others wounded and gunman still at large after shooting in Monterey Park, a city with a large Asian American population
The dance studio at which the shooting occurred has announced that it will be closed for today.
In an Instagram post, Lai Lai Ballroom & Studio Inc wrote, “In observance of the tragedy at Star Dance last night, Lai Lai will be closed today. Tea and night dances are suspended until further notice. Lai Lai will reopen Monday for lessons only. As an extra precaution, all students and teachers are subject to search prior to entering the studio. Our prayers go out to all the victims families.”

Our hearts mourn as we learn more about the devastating acts of last night. We are monitoring the situation closely,” he said on Twitter.
