Homemade Suppressors, Hoards of Ammo Found in California Gunman's Home

The man suspected of slaughtering 11 people at a Los Angeles County dance hall Saturday night possessed hundreds of ammunition rounds and materials to create homemade gun

suppressors at his home, authorities said Monday. The disturbing details emerged after deputies searched the residence of 72-year-old Huu Can Tran on Monday, Los Angeles

County Sheriff Robert Luna said. Despite the announcement, Luna said there was still no clear motive for the deadly rampage. Monterey Park’s police chief, Scott Wiese, even

went so far as to suggest Monday that Tran’s motive may never be fully revealed because he killed himself. “We all want answers to questions we may never have answers to,”

Wiese said. “That’s kind of the enigma of this...The why is a big part of this. The problem is, we may never know the why.” The “massacre,” as Luna described it, began just

before 10:30 p.m. Saturday, just minutes after the conclusion of a community celebration of the Lunar New Year in Monterey Park, California—a city predominantly populated by

Chinese immigrants and Chinese-Americans. After Tran was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound on Sunday afternoon, Luna said detectives recovered the clothes he

wore during the attack—which matched those the shooter was captured on camera wearing—as well as a rifle and handgun in his van. There were 42 shell casings recovered in total at

the dance hall. Luna identified three of the shooting victims on Monday: Lilan Li, 63, Valentino Alvero, 68, and Xiujan Yu, 57—while adding that the rest will be named after

their families are notified.
