Gunman kills 10 near Lunar New Year festival in California

A gunman killed 10 people at a Californian ballroom dance studio during a day of Lunar New Year celebrations, and then may have tried, but failed, to target a second dance hall, authorities have said. A search was under way across the Los Angeles area for the suspect. Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna said that 20 to 30 minutes after the shooting at the Star Ballroom Dance Studio in Monterey Park late on Saturday, which left five women and five men dead and another 10 people injured, a man with a gun had entered the Lai Lai Ballroom in nearby Alhambra. Mr Luna said it remained unclear whether the events were connected.
