They flooded the streets they’re interviewing as many people as possible but not much is known right now the Monterey Monterey Park PD which is about 10 miles from downtown L. A is handling the investigation but that’s a very small Police Department that’s only about 75 sworn officers so L.A County their Sheriff’s homicide detectives have now jumped in to help to see.

If we can find some answers because answers are definitely needed you see it not much is known but do we know anything about the possible motive no not at this time not right now I can tell you that witness accounts from what I I’ve gathered uh people posting on social media Twitter and Instagram and Facebook and things that the ballroom is used every Saturday night uh and they have you know swing dancing they have Ballroom type dancing there and it’s a very safe place to be uh so motive right now remains a mystery okay Jason Campania journalist and Ellie thank you
