According to Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna, the two occurrences may be connected. A group of individuals grabbed a gun away from an armed guy at a dance studio in Alhambra, California, shortly after the shooting that occurred in Monterey Park on Saturday.

Weapon recovered from 2nd scene in Alhambra. Luna declines to specify weapon recovered at this time.

Luna claimed that the Alhambra event took place “within 20 to 30 minutes” before the horrific massacre at Monterey Park.

The gun that was taken from the man in Alhambra was taken by the sheriff’s office. When asked if it could have been the weapon used in the attack in Monterey Park, Luna said, “It could have been, but we don’t know yet.”

The sheriff also said that witnesses at the scene of the Alhambra shooting told him that the gunman ran away in a white van.

“That person went away. Now, some people who live in that area are saying that they saw a white cargo van. We don’t know yet, though, if it has anything to do with it. At this point, that white van should be an interesting one. Again, detectives are looking at more than one place and more than one clue “Luna said.
