In USA, at least 10 people have died and at least 10 others been wounded in a mass shooting in a largely Asian city in southern California, law enforcement said Sunday, with the suspect still at large hours later, where a crowd of tens of thousands were celebrating the Chinese Lunar New Year, Captain Andrew Meyer of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said wounded - some in critical condition - were taken to hospitals. The gunman opened fire at a dance venue in Monterey Park. Visuals from the scene that have surfaced on social media show a deserted crossroad with one section cordoned off and police sirens in the background.
