Who was victim Lilan Li? All you need to know!
According to the Los Angeles County Coroner, Lilan Li was born in November of 1959 and was a biological female. Also on Saturday night at 10:22, officers in Montery Park responded to a report of gunfire at the Star ball Roon Dance Studio.
Star ballroom Dance Studio, on the hundred block of West Garvey Avenue in Monterey park, was the initial shooting location. Twenty individuals were shot, according to the police. Minutes after purportedly starting the attack, Tran was disarmed. And the second site of the attack, the Lai Lai Ballroom and Studio, located two miles away, was put to rest. After that, he drove away in a vehicle.
At 11 p.m., police found the vehicle near Del Amo Mall at the intersection of Hawthorne and Sepulveda Boulevards. In addition, SWAT forces were sent out around an hour and forty minutes later. Tran was allegedly discovered dead from self-inflicted wounds.
About two hours away from Monterey Park is the city of Hemet, where the suspect allegedly lived and where he had contacted police twice this month to report fraud, theft, and poisoning claims against members of his family in the Los Angeles region.
About half an hour after his first attack, he visited a second dance class in nearby Alhambra. But 26-year-old Brandon Tsay pulled his gun away.
