Suspect commits suicide after killing 10 in Los Angeles

A suspected gunman who escaped after shooting and killing 10 people at a ballroom dance hall in the city of Los Angeles, USA, committed suicide.

The attack took place at Monterey Park in Los Angeles on Saturday night local time during a Chinese Lunar New Year celebration.

More than 12 hours after the incident, the suspect committed suicide in Torrance, about 34 kilometers from the scene, on Sunday morning, Reuters reported.

At a press conference Sunday afternoon, Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna said officers from the police SWAT team surrounded a white minibus in Torrance and approached it when the man shot himself. Police broke out the car’s window and found him dead. The suspect was driving the microbus.
