The suspect Huu Can Tran, 72, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna said. He was found dead in a van in Torrance after a traffic stop led to a standoff, Luna said.

Authorities found evidence in the van linking the suspect to both the Monterey Park shooting and another incident in the nearby city of Alhambra, Luna said.
