Nine people were killed in a mass shooting Saturday night in a city east of Los Angeles following a Lunar New Year celebration that drew thousands, police said.

Sgt. Bob Boese of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said the shooting was reported at 10:22 p.m. and occurred at a business on Garvey Ave. in Monterey Park. The shooter is male, Boese said early Sunday.

Officials did not provide information for several hours after dozens of police officers responded to reports of the shooting.

Monterey Park is a city of about 60,000 people with a large Asian population that is located about 10 miles from downtown Los Angeles.

Two police officers stand guard near a shooting scene in Monterey Park, Calif., Sunday, Jan. 22, 2023.
Seung Won Choi, owner of the Clam House seafood barbecue restaurant across the street from where the shooting occurred, told the Los Angles Times that three people ran into his business and told him to lock the door.


People also told Choi that there was a shooter with a machine gun who had several rounds of ammunition for him to reload. Choi said he believes the shooting took place at a dance club.

Saturday marked the start of the two-day festival, which is one of the biggest Lunar New Year events in Southern California.
