California Governor Newsom Says He’s Monitoring Monterey Park Shooting

A dance studio in Alhambra, California, said on social media that it will be closing due to a tragic mass shooting that happened nearby in Monterey Park.

A gunman killed 10 people and injured at least 10 others in Saturday night’s shooting, according to law enforcement. Using geotagging, a CNN analysis identified the location as the Star Ballroom Dance Studio.

Lai Lai Ballroom and Studio, located in nearby Alhambra, posted on Instagram that it will be closed for the day on Sunday and will cancel evening classes until further notice.

The studio also noted that it will now search all students and teachers before they can enter the building.

“Due to the tragedy at Star Dance last night, Lai Lai will be closed today. Tea and night dances are suspended until further notice. Lai Lai will reopen on Monday for classes only. As an additional precaution, all students and teachers are searched before entering the studio. Our prayers go out to all the families of the victims,” ​​Lai Lai Ballroom & Studio Inc posted on her Instagram Story on Sunday morning.

It’s unclear if there’s a specific connection between the two studios, beyond their locations roughly three miles apart.

Correction: An earlier version of this post incorrectly listed the studio where the mass shooting took place. It happened at the Star Ballroom Dance Studio in Monterey Park, according to a CNN analysis.
