The shooting took place in a predominantly Asian community, leading many to speculate it may have been a racially motivated crime, but police have so far warned the public there simply isn’t enough information available to draw any conclusions on the matter. “We will look at every angle to see if this is a hate crime or not. It’s just too early in the investigation to know.” said Captain Andrew Meyer of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Meyer added that when officers arrived at the scene around 10:30 p.m. local time, people “shouted from the scene.” Meyer also said there was no information on the type of weapon used by the shooter or a possible motive. He pointed out that police are looking into whether the shooting was linked to another incident at the Alhambra to see if they might be linked. No injuries were reported in this incident.
