Standoff in Torrance as police find van linked to Lunar New Year mass shooting

Police have located a white van they believe is connected to the gunman who opened fire at a ballroom dance studio in Monterey Park on Saturday night, killing 10 people and injuring 10 others.

Multiple police cars surrounded the vehicle in Torrance on Sunday morning and shots were fired, law enforcement sources told The Times. It was not known who was in the vehicle or whether there were any injuries.

The shooting occurred on Lunar New Year’s Eve about seven miles east of downtown Los Angeles. L.A. County Sheriff Robert Luna said it was too early to tell whether the festival was connected to the shooting.

A law enforcement source briefed on the matter said the gunman used a high-powered assault rifle at close range. Some witnesses described a white cargo van, which Luna said should be considered “a van of interest.”

Virginia shooting of teacher by six-year-old ‘not accidental’, authorities say

Boy in custody after shooting wounds teacher in abdomen during an altercation, according to authorities

The apparently deliberate shooting of a Virginia school teacher by a gun-carrying six-year-old pupil has shocked many across the United States, causing outrage and horror even in a country long-used to regular school shootings that are rare elsewhere in the world.

Authorities have not described the exact circumstances of the shooting nor how they believe the boy came to possess the weapon or to whom it belongs. They may struggle to define exactly what action can be taken against someone so young, who is now in custody.

“We are ensuring he has all the services that he currently needs right now,” Newport News mayor Phillip Jones said Saturday.

The mayor said he considers the incident, the first recorded US school shooting of 2023, “a red flag for our country”. Jones added: “I do think that after this event, there is going to be a nationwide discussion on how these sorts of things can be prevented”.

The condition of the teacher, Abby Zwerner, 25, is now “trending in a positive direction”, Jones said over the weekend after she entered hospital in a critical condition.
