UPDATE – 8 a.m. – We just learned of the mass shooting which took place at a Monterey Park Dance Studio last night. According to reports, at least 10 people are dead, the suspected shooter is still at-large. This will likely affect gatherings in the area (like the Monterey Park New Year’s Festivities) so keep an eye out for cancellations of new year’s events. It goes without saying to be safe out there!
