Breaking: Los Angeles Shooting Leaves Ten Dead

Ten people were killed in a shooting Saturday at a ballroom-dance studio in Monterey Park, a city in Los Angeles county.

Police confirmed an additional ten people were wounded, the BBC reported. The massacre in Monterey Park happened on Lunar New Year's Eve at around 10:30 p.m. local time Saturday night. A festival celebrating the holiday drew thousands to the city, which has a large Asian-American population, earlier in the day.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said they are searching for a male suspect but no motive is known. A firearm was confirmed as the weapon used.

"When officers arrived on scene, they observed numerous individuals, patrons … pouring out of the location, screaming. The officers made entry to the location and located additional victims," Los Angeles sheriff's captain Andrew Meyer told reporters at a press briefing Sunday morning, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The ten other injured civilians were hospitalized after the shooting. Some are in serious condition while others are more stable, Meyers suggested.

The police chief added that there was another incident in Alhambra, a suburb north of Monterey Park, and investigators are on the scene "trying to determine if there’s a connection." No one was harmed in Alhambra, CBS News reported.

Police have not yet been able to determine the tragedy in Monterey Park a hate crime but Meyers said, "We will look at every angle."
