Local Chinese-language media have been reporting that the shooter is a male of Chinese origin. This is unconfirmed by authorities.
UPDATE: Suspect then proceded to a dance studio in nearby Alhambra.
Sheriff Luna says the incident in Alhambra likely involved the same #MontereyPark suspect. In Alhambra, bystanders wrestled a gun away from a man at a dance studio about 20 minutes after the mass shooting in the nearby community https://t.co/jT5HEyOG3P

It appears to be because of a domestic dispute.
According to Chester Chong the Chairman of the Los Angeles Chinese Chamber of Commerce, the mass shooting in Monterey Park was a domestic issue between a husband and wife and not a hate crime. pic.twitter.com/mo6a2Gh3i3
