With a bouquet of flowers in hand, Vice President Harris visited Star Dance Studio in Monterey Park and paid her respects to members of the community who lost their lives in Sunday’s mass shooting.
Harris only spoke briefly to the press, calling for further change to avoid mass shootings like the one in Monterey Park that took 11 lives. Harris said she would meet with local law enforcement officials, lawmakers, and family members of the deceased.
Sunday’s mass shooting at the Star Dance Studio has now become the deadliest mass shooting in Los Angeles County, exceeding the 2008 Covina Massacre.
After Harris’s visit, a vigil was held outside the dance studio for the victims of the mass shooting. Tonight is the third night in a row a vigil was held in Monterey Park, as local residents continue to grieve in the aftermath of the tragedy.
