    Former top FBI official Charles McGonigal arrested over ties to Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska

    Oleg Deripaska has been sanctioned by the U.S.

    A former top FBI official in New York has been arrested over his ties to a Russian oligarch, law enforcement sources told ABC News Monday.

    Charles McGonigal, who was the special agent in charge of counterintelligence in the FBI's New York Field Office, is under arrest over his ties to Oleg Deripaska, a Russian billionaire who has been sanctioned by the United States and criminally charged last year with violating those sanctions.

    McGonigal retired from the FBI in 2018. He was arrested Saturday afternoon after he arrived at JFK Airport following travel in Sri Lanka, the sources said.

    McGonigal pleaded not guilty to the four-count indictment unsealed Monday in Manhattan.

    The judge ordered him released on a $500,000 personal recognizance bond plus restrictions on his travel and prohibitions on contacting anyone associated with the case.

    He was charged along with a court interpreter, Sergey Shestakov, who also worked with Deripaska.

    McGonigal, 54, is charged with violating U.S. sanctions by trying to get Deripaska off the sanctions list. McGonigal is one of the highest ranking former FBI officials ever charged with a crime.

    McGonigal and Shestakov, who worked for the FBI investigating oligarchs, allegedly agreed in 2021 to investigate a rival Russian oligarch in return for payments from Deripaska, according to the Justice Department. McGonigal and Shestakov are accused of receiving payments through shell companies and forging signatures in order to keep it a secret that Deripaska was paying them.

    Both face money laundering charges in addition to charges for violating sanctions. Each of four counts carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.

    "The FBI is committed to the enforcement of economic sanctions designed to protect the United States and our allies, especially against hostile activities of a foreign government and its actors," FBI Assistant Director in Charge Michael Driscoll said in a statement. "Russian oligarchs like Oleg Deripaska perform global malign influence on behalf of the Kremlin and are associated with acts of bribery, extortion, and violence."

    Driscoll continued, "As alleged, Mr. McGonigal and Mr. Shestakov, both U.S. citizens, acted on behalf of Deripaska and fraudulently used a U.S. entity to obscure their activity in violation of U.S. sanctions. After sanctions are imposed, they must be enforced equally against all U.S. citizens in order to be successful. There are no exceptions for anyone, including a former FBI official like Mr. McGonigal."

    After leaving the FBI, McGonigal subsequently worked for Deripaska through a law firm representing the Russian oil tycoon.

    He made at least $25,000 working as an "investigator" for the law firm on the Deripaska matter, according to the indictment.

    McGonigal then worked directly for Deripaska, getting an initial payment of $51,000 and then payments of $41,790 each month for three months from August 2021 to November 2021.

    He told friends he was working for "a rich Russian guy," according to the indictment, and stressed his work was legal. In conversations about Deripaska, he would often be referred to by McGonigal and Shestakov as "the big guy" and "you know whom."

    The U.S. Attorney's Office in Washington, D.C., unsealed a separate case Monday against McGonigal on charges he received $225,000 in cash from an individual with business interests in Europe who McGonigal knew was an employee of a foreign intelligence service.

    The nine-count indictment alleges between August 2017 and September 2018, leading up to his retirement from the FBI New York Field Office, McGonigal concealed from the bureau his relationship with this unidentified former foreign intelligence officer all while traveling abroad with the person and meeting foreign nationals. The person is described as an Albanian national who was employed by a Chinese energy conglomerate.

    The person later "served as an FBI source in a criminal investigation involving foreign political lobbying" over which McGonigal had a supervisory role.

    In the court appearance in Manhattan Monday, assistant U.S. Attorney Derek Wikstrom said McGonigal would appear virtually Wednesday before a federal judge in D.C. to be arraigned on allegedly taking $225,000 from the Albanian businessman.

    A lawyer for McGonigal has not responded to ABC News' request for comment.

    Shestakov, 69, who was living in Morris, Connecticut, also allegedly lied to FBI investigators in November 2021 about his relationship with Deripaska. In addition to the other charges, he has been charged with one count of making false statements.

    Deripaska, an aluminum magnate, was among two dozen Russians sanctioned in 2018 by the Treasury Department as punishment for "the Russian government's ongoing and increasingly malign activities in the world," according to Treasury officials.

    The FBI searched his homes in New York and Washington in 2021.

    The 55-year-old Deripaska is worth $1.7 billion, according to Forbes' Billionaires List, though he was worth nearly $7 billion in 2018 -- the same year sanctions kicked in by the U.S.

    The film is directed by M. Night Shyamalan and produced by M. Night Shyamalan, Marc Bienstock (Split, Glass) and Ashwin Rajan (Servant, Glass). The executive producers are Steven Schneider, Christos V. Konstantakopoulos and Ashley Fox.

    Writer in the horror community since 2008. Editor in Chief of Bloody Disgusting. Owns Eli Roth's prop corpse from Piranha 3D. Has four awesome cats. Still plays with toys.

    Slapdash, direct-to-video horror sequels cropped up like weeds in the 2000s, but no title from this particular era continues to receive as much flak as American Psycho 2 (sometimes subtitled All American Girl). As people probably know by now, this began as an original movie called The Girl Who Wouldn’t Die before someone at Lionsgate had the bright idea to make it into a sequel to American Psycho. To say critics and audiences back then hated the decision would be an understatement. Yet in this time of constant reevaluation of overhated cinema, maybe Morgan J. Freeman‘s American Psycho 2 isn’t a complete misfire. Beyond the panning and massive studio meddling sits a dark and sometimes fun comedy that was never given a fair chance.

    “Angrier, deadlier, sexier” says the tagline for American Psycho 2, but this lambasted sequel is far less lurid than its poster suggests. Before the present-day plot begins, the protagonist’s younger self is first seen in the past; Rachel Newman is brought along on her babysitter’s date with the homicidal Patrick Bateman (obviously not played by Christian Bale). As her babysitter bleeds out, Rachel takes an icepick to the unsuspecting Bateman. She then leaves the crime scene, never telling anyone where she was or what she did that day.

    Later in college, Rachel (Mila Kunis) is put on the fast track to working for the FBI. All that stands in Rachel’s way are three other students in her behavioral studies program. But if Rachel can become her FBI-agent-turned-professor’s new TA, she’s practically guaranteed an acceptance to Quantico. Therein lies the main character’s problem; believing she can do good in the future, Rachel does bad things right now to achieve her dream. Her plan to win involves not only a murder spree all across campus, but also mind games that trap both Professor Starkman (William Shatner) and a distrustful campus counselor (Geraint Wyn Davies).

    American Psycho was an aggressive and innovative satire about avarice and capitalism in the ‘80s. It blends cutting and insightful humor with shocking violence. Director Mary Harron punched up as well as reclaimed the scandalous source material, making sure her adaptation had its own identity. Once a misunderstood movie, critics have, by and large, come around to see American Psycho in a new light. Meanwhile, American Psycho 2 doesn’t concern grander themes about the state of society. This is no time capsule of a specific social or economic period, either. No, the sequel is straightforward and devoid of profound commentary.

    Realizing American Psycho 2 was screwed over by studio tampering should afford it some mercy. After all, the studio ruined the movie’s chance for individuality by forcing a connection to something well-regarded and far more unique. There was no way this once unrelated story could measure up, even with retrofitting; the choice to sequelize was sprung on the cast and crew during production. With the initial shock out of the way, though, perhaps everyone can finally reassess the sequel. That tall order requires mentally excising the Bateman bits sprinkled throughout, and finding the remains of The Girl Who Wouldn’t Die.

    Rachel is no Patrick Bateman. Christian Bale delivered an intense and full-bodied performance that many people still consider a career best for the actor. Bale had plain inspiration and drive for the role, whereas Mila Kunis was stuck in an unfortunate situation out of her control. The movie she signed up for had been twisted into something else, so her tepid performance could be a reflection of the behind-the-scenes changes. Regardless, Kunis has her moments here and there; she charms her way through an imperfect script, and, at times, even genuinely comes across as creepy.

    American Psycho 2 doesn’t possess a novel story; it plays somewhat like a younger version of Cindy Sherman’s black-as-coal comedy and workplace slasher, Office Killer. What the sequel lacks in originality, though, it makes up for in occasional wry humor and visual gags. From Rachel strangling Robin Dunne’s entitled character with a condom — topped off with the oft quoted “ribbed for her pleasure” one-liner — to the amusing mental face-offs between the villain and her older male adversaries, the script is quite funny when it wants to be. Of course it has nothing on Bateman’s notorious, ax-wielding monologue about Huey Lewis, but few things in life are as effective.

    American Psycho 2 isn’t exempt from the usual problems associated with DTV sequels. It feels and looks cheap, the acting is mostly unremarkable, there’s no distinct visual style to speak of, and the music soundtrack is too on the nose. The movie was shot in twenty days, so these shortcomings aren’t all that surprising. Would everything have turned out differently if the creatives had been allowed to make The Girl Who Wouldn’t Die? Maybe, but unless a Bateman-free director’s cut surfaces, no one will ever know.

    As a continuation, American Psycho 2 fails to live up to its beloved predecessor; that was inevitable as soon as some higher-up made a foolish decision. But as a campy and quirky “good for her” comedy with a slasher element? That is something this disparaged sequel has going for itself.

    What we know about the mass shooting in Monterey Park, California

    Police officers stand guard near the scene of a deadly shooting on Sunday in Monterey Park, Calif. 10 people were killed and 10 more were injured at a dance studio near a Lunar New Year celebration on Saturday night.

    A mass shooting over the weekend at a dance studio in Monterey Park, a city east of Los Angeles, killed 10 people and left 10 others injured.

    After an hours-long manhunt, the suspect was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in Torrance, about 30 miles southwest of Monterey Park, officials said. The suspect has been identified as Huu Can Tran, a 72-year-old man.

    The late Saturday evening attack took place in a predominantly Asian American community on Lunar New Year's eve, after a popular festival in the area. Officials have not yet identified the victims.

    A motive for the shooting is not known. The FBI and state authorities are also involved in the investigation.

    Investigators work at the scene of Saturday's mass shooting in Monterey Park, California.

    At around 10:22 p.m. local time on Saturday, a gunman opened fire inside of Star Dance Studio, Chinese-owned ballroom dance studio on West Garvey Avenue, less than a block from where a Lunar New Year festival was held. The first day of the two-day festival had just ended. The event, which officials said drew more than 100,000 attendees, was canceled after the shooting.

    About a half hour after the attack, the same armed man went into another ballroom studio, Lai Lai Ballroom and Studio, in nearby Alhambra, a few miles away.

    The suspect went to the second location with the "intent to kill more people," Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna said, but two people successfully disarmed the suspect by wresting the weapon out of his hands.

    The suspect was using what local authorities said was a magazine-fed assault-style pistol, of which Luna said he was unsure of its legal status in the state.

    On Sunday at about 10:20 a.m., police saw a white cargo van in Torrance, Calif. The driver of the van pulled over and police surrounded it, then heard a single gunshot. Authorities retreated and returned at about 12:52 p.m. with backup, to find Tran inside, dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

    Of the 10 people pronounced dead at the scene, five were women and five were men, officials said. The wounded victims were rushed to local hospitals, in conditions ranging from stable to critical. The victims are in their 50s and above.

    Bystanders watch law enforcement agents breaking into a van containing the suspect's body in Torrance, California, on Sunday.

    Monterey Park's population is more than 65% Asian, according to the latest figures from the U.S. Census Bureau.

    The city of nearly 60,000 residents had just wrapped up the first day of its Lunar New Year Festival when the shooting occurred.

    Lunar New Year, which began Sunday, is one of the most important festivals across Asian societies, including in Vietnam, China, Korea and Mongolia. The holiday historically starts on the first full moon of the lunar year, but its start date and origins may vary across cultures.

    Monterey Park council member Thomas Wong, who represents the district where the shooting took place, said his community was shocked, saddened and "on edge."

    "Instead of celebrating and bringing family together to look forward to a hopeful and prosperous new year, we're starting it off with a senseless tragedy," Wong told NPR.

    Monterey Park Mayor Henry Lo expressed his condolences for the shooting victims and their families at a press conference, and said, "Moving forward, it is important that we be there for them, to provide services and support they need, in what will be a time of healing in the next weeks, months, if not years."

    Monterey Park has established a memorial at city hall and a survivor's center at a local senior center.

    President Biden has been briefed on the shooting.

    "Jill and I are praying for those killed and injured in last night's deadly mass shooting in Monterey Park. I'm monitoring this situation closely as it develops, and urge the community to follow guidance from local officials and law enforcement in the hours ahead," Biden said in a statement on Sunday.

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom was in Monterey Park following the shooting.

    "The strength of this community is incredible," he said. "No other country in the world is terrorized by this constant stream of gun violence. We need real gun reform at a national level.

    Police departments in San Francisco, New York City, Philadelphia and Houston said they would be increasing the presence of officers at Lunar New Year events following the mass shooting.

    The shooting in Monterey Park comes amid an already violent year for the U.S.

    The country has seen at least 33 mass shootings in 2023 alone, according to data compiled by the Gun Violence Archive.

    The archive defines a mass shooting as one in which at least four people are injured or killed, other than the shooter.

    autoridades identifican al sospechoso, que se quitó la vida

    Es solo el día 22 del año y ya ha habido al menos 36 tiroteos masivos en Estados Unidos hasta el momento, según la organización sin fines de lucro Gun Violence Archive (GVA).

    Esto significa que ha habido más tiroteos masivos este año que días en 2023.

    CNN y GVA definen un tiroteo masivo como un tiroteo que hirió o mató a cuatro o más personas, sin incluir al atacante.

    El hombre que disparó fatalmente a 10 personas en un estudio de baile del sur de California alguna vez fue una presencia regular en el estudio, incluso conoció a su ex esposa allí, dijeron a CNN tres personas que lo conocían.

    La policía dice que Huu Can Tran, de 72 años, abrió fuego en Star Ballroom Dance Studio en el suburbio de Monterey Park en Los Ángeles, el sábado por la noche, antes de suicidarse después de una persecución en la región el domingo.

    Su exesposa dijo en una entrevista que conoció a Tran hace unas dos décadas en el Star Ballroom Dance Studio, un popular lugar de reunión de la comunidad donde daba lecciones informales. Tran la vio en un baile, se presentó y le ofreció lecciones gratuitas, dijo.

    Los dos se casaron poco después de conocerse, según la ex esposa, quien pidió no ser identificada debido a la delicadeza del caso. Si bien Tran nunca fue violento con ella, dijo que podía enojarse rápidamente. Por ejemplo, dijo, si se perdía un paso de baile, él se molestaba porque sentía que lo hacía quedar mal. Ella comentó que después de varios años juntos, tuvo la impresión de que él había perdido interés en ella. Su hermana, que también pidió no ser nombrada, confirmó su versión.

    Se desconoce con qué frecuencia Tran visitó el salón de baile, si es que lo hizo, en los últimos años.

    Tran solicitó el divorcio a fines de 2005 y un juez aprobó el divorcio al año siguiente, según muestran los registros judiciales de Los Ángeles.

    Tran era un inmigrante de China, según una copia de su licencia de matrimonio que su exesposa mostró a CNN.

    Otro conocido de Tran desde hace mucho tiempo también lo recuerda como una presencia frecuente en el estudio de baile. El amigo, que también pidió no ser identificado, estaba cerca de Tran a fines de la década de 2000 y principios de la de 2010, cuando dijo que Tran haría el viaje de aproximadamente 5 minutos desde su casa en San Gabriel hasta el Star Ballroom Dance Studio "casi todas las noches".

    Tran a menudo se quejaba en ese momento de que a los instructores del salón de baile no les agradaba y decían "cosas malas sobre él", recordó el amigo, y agregó que Tran era "hostil con mucha gente allí".

    En términos más generales, Tran se irritaba con facilidad, se quejaba mucho y no parecía confiar en la gente, dijo el amigo.

    Tran a veces trabajaba como camionero, según su exesposa.

    Los registros comerciales muestran que Tran registró un negocio llamado Tran's Trucking Inc. en California en 2002. Pero disolvió el negocio unos dos años después y escribió en un documento corporativo que la compañía nunca había adquirido ningún activo conocido ni había contraído deudas o pasivos conocidos.

    En 2013, Tran vendió su casa en San Gabriel, de la que había sido propietario durante más de dos décadas, según muestran los registros de propiedad.

    Siete años después, según muestran los registros, Tran compró una casa móvil en una comunidad de personas mayores en Hemet, California, un suburbio a unos 136 kilómetros al este de Los Ángeles.

    El amigo de Tran dijo que no había visto a Tran en varios años y que estaba "totalmente conmocionado" cuando se enteró del tiroteo.

    “Conozco a muchas personas, y si van a Star Studio, frecuentan allí”, dijo el amigo, y agregó que estaba “preocupado de que tal vez conozca a algunas de las víctimas del tiroteo”.

    Fuentes policiales le dijeron a CNN que el sospechoso del tiroteo en Monterey Park pudo haber buscado tratamiento médico poco antes de su captura.

    La policía recibió un aviso el domingo de un hospital del área donde un hombre que se ajustaba a la descripción del sospechoso ingresó a la sala de emergencias en busca de tratamiento por lesiones consistentes tras haber estado en una pelea.

    El hombre esperó un tiempo y luego salió del hospital sin recibir tratamiento. El hospital notificó a las autoridades cuando vieron la similitud con la persona buscada representada en las fotos en la cuenta de Twitter del departamento del sheriff.

    Poco tiempo después, la policía de Torrance detuvo una camioneta de carga blanca, donde el sospechoso del tiroteo en Monterey Park finalmente fue encontrado muerto después de un enfrentamiento.

    La escena era caótica con personas que intentaban escapar y otros heridos cuando los agentes de policía llegaron al lugar del tiroteo masivo el sábado por la noche en Monterey Park, California, según Scott Wiese, jefe del Departamento de Policía de Monterey Park.

    Los agentes llegaron a la escena en "menos de 3 minutos" desde que se hizo la primera llamada, dijo.

    "Los primeros agentes en la escena fueron algunos de mis agentes más jóvenes. Solo habían estado en la calle por un período muy corto de tiempo", dijo Wiese durante una conferencia de prensa el domingo.

    "Cuando entraron al estacionamiento, era un caos. Había personas heridas, había personas tratando de huir por todas las puertas. Inmediatamente entraron en acción y en solo un par de minutos, esos agentes habían ingresado al lugar buscando para el sospechoso. Ese es nuestro protocolo aquí. No esperamos”, agregó.

    "Adentro, se encontraron con una escena para la que ninguno de ellos estaba preparado. Había personas heridas adentro. Había personas muertas adentro. Y mis jóvenes agentes hicieron su trabajo y buscaron a un sospechoso y luego regresaron y tuvieron que lidiar con la masacre que había adentro”.

    "Esa es una de las razones por las que necesito asegurarme de que estén bien", afirmó.

    El arma que le quitaron al presunto atacante de Monterey Park en un segundo lugar el sábado por la noche es una semiautomática Cobray M11 de 9 mm, según un agente de la ley con conocimiento del caso.

    En una conferencia de prensa el domingo por la noche, el sheriff del condado de Los Ángeles, Robert Luna, describió el arma como una "pistola de asalto semiautomática alimentada por un cargador" con un cargador extendido de gran capacidad.

    Este estilo de arma de fuego está diseñado para llevar cargadores de 30 rondas que permiten disparar rápidamente sin tener que cambiar de cargador con frecuencia.

    En respuesta a la pregunta de un reportero, Luna dijo: "Creo que el arma... no es legal tenerla aquí en el estado de California".

    El sheriff agregó que aún necesitaba consultar a la Oficina de Alcohol, Tabaco, Armas de Fuego y Explosivos para obtener más detalles sobre la legalidad del arma.

    La fuente policial de CNN dijo que el arma ayudó a llevar a los investigadores al sospechoso.

    Confiscaron el arma en un estudio de baile en Alhambra, California, donde las autoridades dicen que el sospechoso del tiroteo en Monterey Park llegó entre 20 y 30 minutos después de la masacre. Fue confrontado por un grupo de personas que lo desarmaron.

    Los detectives rastrearon el arma y pudieron obtener el nombre y la descripción del sospechoso, dijo la fuente policial. Más tarde fue encontrado muerto por una herida de bala autoinfligida después de un enfrentamiento con la policía en Torrance, California.

    Luna no dijo si las autoridades habían confirmado que la "pistola de asalto" fue el arma utilizada en el tiroteo de Monterey Park.

    La policía descubrió "varias piezas de evidencia" dentro de una camioneta utilizada por el sospechoso que lo vinculó con el lugar del tiroteo masivo en Monterey Park, California, el sábado por la noche, dijo la policía el domingo.

    El sheriff del condado de Los Ángeles, Robert Luna, dijo que se descubrió evidencia que vinculaba al sospechoso con Monterey Park, así como con la cercana Alhambra, mientras la policía registraba el vehículo después de que el sospechoso muriera de una herida de bala autoinfligida.

    Además, se descubrió una pistola dentro de la camioneta, indicó.

    Luna había dicho anteriormente que un grupo de personas le quitó un arma a un hombre en un estudio de baile en Alhambra poco después del tiroteo en Monterey Park, y la policía investigaba si los incidentes estaban relacionados.

    Siete personas permanecen hospitalizadas después de que un hombre armado abrió fuego en un estudio de baile de Monterey Park, California, informó a los periodistas el sheriff del condado de Los Ángeles, Robert G. Luna, el domingo por la noche.

    Diez personas fallecieron en el tiroteo, que ocurrió cerca de una celebración del festival del Año Nuevo Lunar.

    Las autoridades no han dado a conocer los nombres de ninguno de los muertos o heridos en el tiroteo masivo.

    El sheriff del condado de Los Ángeles, Robert Luna, dijo que los investigadores confirmaron que el hombre encontrado muerto dentro de una camioneta de carga blanca después de un enfrentamiento con la policía en Torrance, California, es la misma persona sospechosa de llevar a cabo un tiroteo masivo en Monterey Park el sábado por la noche.

    Luna dijo que después del enfrentamiento, los agentes encontraron al hombre muerto por una herida de bala autoinfligida.

    Luna identificó al sospechoso como Huu Can Tran, de 72 años.

    El presidente Joe Biden ofreció sus condolencias luego del tiroteo en Monterey Park, California, que mató al menos a 10 personas el sábado por la noche en un estudio de baile cerca de la celebración del festival del Año Nuevo Lunar.

    “Si bien todavía hay mucho que no sabemos sobre el motivo de este ataque sin sentido, sabemos que muchas familias están de duelo esta noche o rezan para que su ser querido se recupere de sus heridas”, dijo Biden en el comunicado.

    Biden reconoció el impacto en la comunidad asiáticoamericana e isleña del Pacífico (AAPI) mientras los funcionarios continúan investigando un motivo. (Recuerda: es demasiado pronto para decir si se trató de un crimen de odio porque el motivo aún se desconoce, dijo el Capitán Andrew Meyer del Departamento del Sheriff del Condado de Los Ángeles).

    "Incluso mientras continuamos buscando respuestas sobre este ataque, sabemos cuán profundamente ha impactado este ataque a la comunidad AAPI. Monterey Park es el hogar de una de las comunidades AAPI más grandes de Estados Unidos, muchas de las cuales estaban celebrando el Año Nuevo Lunar junto con sus seres queridos y amigos este fin de semana", dijo.

    Biden reiteró que ha pedido apoyo federal total para las autoridades locales y estatales.

    "Mientras esperamos más información crucial de la policía, quiero asegurarle a la comunidad de Monterey Park y al área en general que los apoyaremos en todo lo que podamos", concluyó.

    Los Angeles Times informa que el conductor de la camioneta blanca que se cree que está relacionado con el tiroteo en el salón de baile de Monterey Park está muerto.

    Múltiples fuentes policiales le dijeron a The Times que el conductor murió de una herida de bala autoinfligida y que al menos dos agujeros de bala habían sido visibles en la ventana del lado del conductor momentos antes de que se acercaran al vehículo.

    Los equipos de CNN en la escena en Torrance aún no han visto que hayan sacado al conductor de la camioneta desde que los equipos SWAT ingresaron.

    El domingo temprano, fuentes policiales le dijeron a John Miller de CNN que la información preliminar desde Torrance era que la policía intentó detener una camioneta de carga blanca, que se ajustaba a la descripción de un vehículo de interés tras el tiroteo del sábado por la noche en Monterey. Cuando le ordenaron al ocupante que saliera de la camioneta, escucharon y creyeron que el conductor podría haberse disparado.

    En la última hora, los líderes de la comunidad del área de Torrance realizaron una conferencia de prensa y remitieron preguntas sobre el destino del conductor y la posible conexión del incidente con el tiroteo masivo a la Oficina del Sheriff del Condado de Los Ángeles.

    Una conferencia de prensa para hablar sobre el tiroteo masivo en Monterey Park se llevará a cabo a las 4:30 p.m. hora local (7:30 p.m. ET) en el Ayuntamiento de Monterey Park, según el Departamento del Sheriff del Condado de Los Ángeles (LASD por sus siglas en inglés).

    Entre los participantes estarán el sheriff del condado de Los Ángeles, Robert G. Luna; el capitán de la Oficina de Homicidios, Andrew Meyer; y el jefe de policía de Monterey Park, Scott Wiese, según el LASD.

    El enfrentamiento en Torrance, California, que involucró a una camioneta blanca de carga, la cual encajaba con la descripción de un vehículo de interés por el tiroteo de este sábado por la noche en Monterey Park, terminó, tuiteó la Oficina de Cumplimiento Especial (SEB por sus siglas en inglés) del Departamento del Sheriff del condado de Los Ángeles.

    "Operación SEB SWAT para un sospechoso armado en Torrance terminó. Vecindario seguro", dijo la oficina.

    No se proporcionó información adicional.

    Un equipo táctico de las fuerzas de seguridad se desplazó al lugar y comenzó a registrar una camioneta blanca de carga que se vio envuelta en un enfrentamiento con agentes de policía en Torrance, California.

    Un video aéreo de la cadena KABC, afiliada a CNN, muestra a los agentes acercándose a la camioneta con los rifles desenfundados. Uno de los agentes rompió la ventanilla del lado del pasajero, metió la mano en el interior y abrió la puerta. A continuación, los agentes abrieron las puertas laterales y empezaron a registrar el vehículo.

    Fuentes policiales dijeron anteriormente a CNN que la camioneta está potencialmente relacionada con el tiroteo masivo de Monterey Park. Los agentes escucharon lo que creían que era el sonido del conductor disparándose a sí mismo durante un enfrentamiento que comenzó después de que los agentes detuvieran la furgoneta, dijeron las fuentes.

    Preguntado por el enfrentamiento, que seguía en curso mientras el sheriff del condado de Los Ángeles, Robert Luna, celebraba una rueda de prensa este domingo por la tarde, el sheriff dijo que aún no sabía si la persona de la furgoneta era el sospechoso del tiroteo masivo del sábado en un estudio de danza.

    Torrance es una ciudad de la región de South Bay del condado de Los Ángeles, situada a unos 50 kilómetros al suroeste de Monterey Park.

    Aunque las fuerzas de seguridad difundieron fotos del sospechoso del tiroteo masivo de Monterey Park, California, el sheriff del condado de Los Ángeles se negó a dar su nombre públicamente en una rueda de prensa celebrada este domingo por la tarde.

    A la pregunta de los periodistas de por qué no daba a conocer el nombre del hombre, el sheriff Robert Luna dijo: "Es una prioridad detener a esta persona. Y tenemos una gran cantidad de recursos en toda esta región, y creemos que, si publicamos su nombre, eso inhibirá nuestra capacidad de arrestar potencialmente al sospechoso si está por ahí, o tal vez huir".

    "Por favor, tengan paciencia con nosotros", continuó Luna. "Vamos a mantener nuestra palabra de que vamos a actualizar continuamente. Porque la comunidad, entiendo, está sedienta de información".

    Luna dijo que la foto fue publicada porque, "desde una perspectiva de seguridad pública, queremos que la gente vea quién es, y luego nos den cualquier información que puedan tener sobre su paradero".

    El Sheriff del condado de Los Ángeles, Robert Luna, ofreció apoyo a los sobrevivientes y las familias de las víctimas del tiroteo masivo en Monterey Park durante una conferencia de prensa este domingo por la tarde.

    Luna dijo que se estableció un centro de recursos para víctimas en el Langley Senior Center de la comunidad.

    “Mientras buscamos al sospechoso, no nos olvidaremos de las víctimas y los sobrevivientes”, dijo Luna a los periodistas.

    Dijo que los trabajadores del centro de recursos pueden ayudar a cualquiera que aún esté tratando de reunirse con un ser querido que estaba en el estudio de baile donde ocurrió el tiroteo, y que se ofrecerán servicios psicológicos.

    Las autoridades no saben si el conductor de una camioneta de carga involucrado en un operativo en Torrance, California, está relacionado con el tiroteo masivo en Monterey Park, dijo el Sheriff del condado de Los Ángeles, Robert Luna.

    “Quiero mencionar también que hay un incidente táctico, que está ocurriendo en la ciudad de Torrance, que está siendo cubierto. La gente ha preguntado: '¿Es ese su sospechoso?' No lo sabemos", dijo Luna durante una conferencia de prensa.

    Continuó: "Como dije antes, hoy tuvimos un vehículo que se describió como una camioneta de carga blanca, supongo que dirían, una camioneta de interés. Y hay una camioneta que se parece a lo que se nos describió en la ciudad de Torrance. Es una situación sospechosa con barricadas, estamos trabajando con una de nuestras agencias asociadas en el Departamento de Policía de Torrance para resolver eso. Creemos que hay una persona dentro de ese vehículo. No sabemos cuál es su condición pero lo manejaremos de la manera más segura posible".

    Luna continuó diciendo que el conductor de la camioneta de carga blanca posiblemente podría ser el sospechoso del tiroteo, "pero en este momento, si estamos haciendo nuestro trabajo correctamente, no solo estamos analizando esa situación o escenario, sino que nos estamos asegurando que estamos analizando todas y cada una de las posibilidades".

    Preguntó y animó a los miembros de la comunidad a que, si tenían alguna información sobre el sospechoso del tiroteo, se presentaran.

    La Oficina del Sheriff publicó fotos del sospechoso del tiroteo este domingo en sus redes sociales.

    El operativo en Torrance, California, comenzó cuando la policía trató de detener una camioneta de carga blanca que se ajustaba a la descripción de un vehículo de interés del tiroteo de la noche de este sábado en Monterey Park, dijeron fuentes policiales a CNN, citando información preliminar.

    Cuando los agentes dieron órdenes para que el ocupante saliera de la camioneta, escucharon lo que creen que era el sonido del conductor disparándose a sí mismo, dijeron las fuentes.

    Los agentes han rodeado la camioneta y parece que se están moviendo hacia un enfoque táctico para asegurarse de que el conductor no esté vivo y armado adentro.

    Torrance es una ciudad en la región de South Bay del condado de Los Ángeles, ubicada a unos 48 kilómetros al suroeste de Monterey Park.

    La Oficina del Sheriff del condado de Los Ángeles publicó fotos del sospechoso del tiroteo masivo de Monterey Park.

    El sheriff Robert Luna tuiteó fotos del hombre y señaló que los investigadores lo identificaron como un sospechoso de homicidio que debería ser considerado "armado y peligroso".

    Hay un operativo policial en curso en Torrance, California, que se cree que está asociado con la investigación del tiroteo en Monterey Park, le dijo a CNN una fuente policial.

    Cinco hombres y cinco mujeres murieron en un tiroteo masivo en un estudio de baile en Monterey Park, California, la noche de este sábado, dijeron las autoridades. El atacante sigue prófugo.

    Es demasiado pronto para descartar el crimen de odio como un posible motivo del tiroteo masivo mortal en Monterey Park, California, dijo este domingo el Sheriff del condado de Los Ángeles, Robert Luna.

    “No sabemos si esto es específicamente un crimen de odio definido por la ley”, dijo Luna en una sesión informativa sobre el tiroteo masivo.

    El ataque ocurrió en un salón de baile cerca de un evento del Año Nuevo Lunar la noche de este sábado.

    "Todo está sobre la mesa", dijo Luna sobre la investigación en curso. "Pero, ¿quién entra en un salón de baile y dispara a 20 personas?" cuestionó el sheriff.

    "La descripción que tenemos ahora es de un hombre asiático, ¿eso importa? No lo sé", dijo Luna. “Te puedo decir que todo está sobre la mesa”, enfatizó.

    “Nuestros detectives están analizando todas las posibilidades con nuestros socios”, agregó el sheriff.

    Según Luna, el Departamento del Sheriff del Condado de Los Ángeles (LASD, por sus siglas en ingés) está trabajando en una descripción actualizada del sospechoso y espera publicarla en algún momento este domingo.

    En la sesión informativa dijo que los investigadores habían recibido diferentes descripciones del atacante por parte de los testigos. La única otra información que pudo proporcionar hasta el domingo por la mañana fue que se creía que el atacante tenía entre 30 y 50 años.

    Monterey Park es una comunidad predominantemente asiática, y los instructores del Star Ballroom Dance Studio le dijeron a CNN que el lugar era un lugar de reunión para la comunidad china local.

    Los instructores de baile en Star Ballroom Dance Studio en Monterey Park, California, lo describieron como un lugar de reunión para la comunidad china local.

    El estudio alberga una variedad de clases y lecciones privadas, que según el instructor Oleksandr Kamniev se centran en los bailes de salón y los estándares latinos. El estudio también alquiló su espacio de salón de baile — que tiene un área para karaoke — para fiestas privadas.

    "Para las fiestas, es una gran cosa", dijo Kamniev, y agregó que a veces asistían hasta 300 personas. "A muchos chinos les encanta venir aquí".

    Kamniev estimó que el "99%" de los estudiantes de baile de Star eran chinos y tenían entre 4 y 75 años. Los domingos, dijo, solían ser días de niños en el estudio.

    Según un análisis de CNN, el tiroteo masivo de este sábado tuvo lugar en el Star Ballroom Dance Studio. 10 personas murieron y otras 10 resultaron heridas en el tiroteo, dijo el Sheriff del condado de Los Ángeles, Robert Luna.

    Kamniev y su esposa, Kateryna Kamnieva, enseñaron bailes latinos en el estudio durante varios años. No estuvieron presentes en el tiroteo.

    Kamniev y su esposa dijeron que creían que la dueña del estudio estaba en el lugar la noche de este sábado. Dijeron que se comunicaron con ella y estaban esperando una respuesta cuando hablaron con CNN.

    La representante Judy Chu, que representa a Monterey Park, California, elogió a los socorristas y honró a las víctimas de un tiroteo masivo que dejó 10 muertos la noche de este sábado.

    "Mis pensamientos y condolencias van para las víctimas de este horrible crimen", dijo Chu.

    “Esto podría haber sido mucho peor: solo unas horas antes, todos estábamos juntos a solo una cuadra de distancia en el festival del Año Nuevo Lunar”, dijo, mientras agradecía a los socorristas y las autoridades locales. "Todos los que estábamos parados aquí estábamos allí, y había miles allí".

    "Es horrible que tal cosa pueda ocurrir en un momento de celebración para tantos en la comunidad AAPI y en la comunidad asiática en todo el mundo", agregó. "Este es un momento para estar con la familia, para celebrar y, sin embargo, esto abrió un agujero en todos nuestros corazones".

    A pesar de la tragedia, Chu, quien dijo que ha sido residente del área durante 37 años, sabe cuán fuerte es la comunidad.

    "Monterey Park es resistente. Y lo que sé de la gente aquí es que lo superaremos juntos", dijo el legislador.

    La ciudad es una comunidad predominantemente asiática y tenía planes para que las principales celebraciones del Año Nuevo Lunar continuaran hasta este domingo. Esos planes han sido descartados, dijo la ciudad.

    El presidente de Estados Unidos, Joe Biden, dijo que está monitoreando las consecuencias del tiroteo masivo que dejó 10 personas muertas en Monterey Park, California, “de cerca a medida que se desarrolla”, en un tuit de este domingo por la mañana.

    “Jill y yo estamos orando por los muertos y heridos en el tiroteo masivo mortal de anoche en Monterey Park”, dijo el presidente. “Estoy monitoreando esta situación de cerca a medida que se desarrolla, e insto a la comunidad a seguir las instrucciones de los funcionarios locales y las fuerzas del orden público en las próximas horas”.

    Jill and I are praying for those killed and injured in last night’s deadly mass shooting in Monterey Park.

    I’m monitoring this situation closely as it develops, and urge the community to follow guidance from local officials and law enforcement in the hours ahead.

    La Casa Blanca anunció anteriormente que el presidente fue informado por la asesora de Seguridad Nacional, Liz Sherwood-Randall, y le indicó que “se asegure de que el FBI brinde apoyo total a las autoridades locales”, mientras le brinda actualizaciones periódicas.

    Los Biden permanecen en su casa de vacaciones en Rehoboth Beach y se espera que regresen a Washington este lunes.

    Las autoridades no creen que el atacante haya usado un rifle de asalto en el tiroteo masivo de Monterey Park, California, dijo el Sheriff del condado de Los Ángeles, Robert Luna, a los periodistas en una conferencia de prensa este domingo.

    "Con respecto al arma de fuego, obviamente se dispararon varias rondas en el primer lugar, donde tenemos a todas las víctimas y sobrevivientes. No sabemos cuántas rondas se dispararon. Se han descrito diferentes armas. Con respecto al arma específica, no creemos que fuera un rifle de asalto en este momento, pero nuevamente, eso es parte de la investigación que estamos viendo”, dijo.

    Luna agregó que la policía recuperó un arma de un segundo incidente en un estudio de baile cercano en Alhambra. Dijo que potencialmente podría estar relacionado con el tiroteo en Monterey Park. "Absolutamente podría ser. Todavía no lo sabemos", dijo a los periodistas.

    Luna no especificó el tipo de arma incautada por la policía en Alhambra.

    En ese lugar, la gente pudo desarmar a un hombre que apareció con un arma, dijo el sheriff. El hombre huyó y las autoridades aún están investigando si ese enfrentamiento estuvo relacionado con el ataque de Monterey Park.

    Los incidentes ocurrieron con una diferencia de 20 a 30 minutos, según Luna.

    Un grupo de personas le quitó un arma a un hombre armado en un estudio de baile en Alhambra, California, poco después del tiroteo en Monterey Park este sábado, dijo este domingo el Sheriff del condado de Los Ángeles, Robert Luna, y agregó que los dos incidentes pueden estar relacionados.

    “Estamos trabajando diligentemente con el Departamento de Policía de Alhambra. Creemos que hay un incidente que puede estar relacionado. Todavía no hemos llegado allí, pero definitivamente está en nuestro radar donde un sospechoso asiático entró en un salón de baile con un arma de fuego y algunas personas le arrebataron el arma", dijo el sheriff.

    Luna dijo que el incidente de Alhambra ocurrió después del ataque en Monterey Park, "dentro de 20 a 30 minutos" del tiroteo masivo.

    El departamento del sheriff incautó el arma que le fue arrebatada al hombre en Alhambra. Cuando se le preguntó si era potencialmente el arma utilizada en el ataque de Monterey Park, Luna dijo: "Absolutamente podría ser, aún no lo sabemos".

    El sheriff agregó que el hombre armado del incidente de la Alhambra huyó en una camioneta blanca, según testigos en la escena.

    "Ese individuo se fue. Ahora, algunos testigos en esa área están describiendo una camioneta de carga blanca. Sin embargo, en este momento no sabemos si está conectada. Esa camioneta blanca debería ser una camioneta de interés en este momento. De nuevo,[hay] detectives buscando múltiples ubicaciones, múltiples pistas", dijo Luna.

    Las 10 personas que murieron en el tiroteo masivo del sábado por la noche en un estudio de baile de Monterey Park eran cinco mujeres y cinco hombres, dijo el Sheriff del condado de Los Ángeles, Robert Luna, en una conferencia de prensa este domingo.

    Luna dijo que no tenía detalles específicos sobre las edades de las víctimas u otra información de identificación.

    El atacante del tiroteo masivo de Monterey Park, California, "sigue prófugo", dijo el Sheriff del condado de Los Ángeles, Robert Luna, en una conferencia de prensa este domingo.

    "Estamos aquí para decirles que estamos utilizando todos los recursos para detener a este sospechoso, en lo que creemos que son los casos más atroces del condado. Nuestras agencias policiales estatales y federales locales están trabajando juntas para servir mejor a los residentes del condado de Los Ángeles y detener a este atacante", dijo el sheriff.

    "Necesitamos sacar a esta persona de la calle lo antes posible", dijo Luna.

    Preliminarmente, Luna dijo que el sospechoso ha sido descrito como un hombre asiático de entre 30 y 50 años, pero las fuerzas del orden “obtuvieron diferentes descripciones de un sospechoso”.

    Autoridades realizan una conferencia de prensa sobre un tiroteo masivo en Monterey Park, California, donde al menos 10 personas murieron y al menos 10 más resultaron heridas.

    La Oficina de Campo de Los Ángeles del FBI se unió al Departamento del Sheriff del condado de Los Ángeles y a la Policía de Monterey Park en la investigación.

    Los investigadores de la Oficina de Alcohol, Tabaco, Armas de Fuego y Explosivos (ATF, por sus siglas en inglés) respondieron para ayudar en la investigación del tiroteo masivo en Monterey Park, confirmó la agencia en redes sociales.

    La ATF habitualmente brinda asistencia a las fuerzas del orden locales para rastrear el origen y el propietario de las armas de fuego utilizadas en los delitos. La agencia también lleva a cabo análisis forenses de casquillos de balas de municiones usadas que se dejan en la escena del crimen para determinar el tipo de arma de fuego utilizada y si coincide con la información de la base de datos de la ATF sobre delitos con armas de fuego en el pasado.

    El gobernador de California, Gavin Newsom, dijo el domingo por la mañana que "supervisa de cerca la situación" después del tiroteo masivo dejó al menos 10 personas muertas y otras 10 heridas en Monterey Park, California.

    “Monterey Park debería haber tenido una noche de alegre celebración del Año Nuevo Lunar”, dijo el gobernador en un tuit. "En cambio, fueron víctimas de un acto horrible y despiadado de violencia armada. Nuestros corazones lloran a medida que nos enteramos más sobre los actos devastadores de anoche".

    La alcaldesa de Los Ángeles, Karen Bass, también emitió un comunicado, calificando los informes de la masacre como "absolutamente devastadores".

    Monterey Park está ubicado a unos 11 kilómetros del centro de Los Ángeles.

    "Las familias merecen celebrar las fiestas en paz: los tiroteos masivos y la violencia armada son una plaga en nuestras comunidades", afirmó Bass. "Mientras las investigaciones determinan si estos asesinatos fueron motivados por el odio hacia personas de origen asiático, seguimos unidos contra todos los intentos de dividirnos".

    Monterey Park es una comunidad predominantemente asiática, pero las autoridades no han publicado ninguna información sobre un posible motivo de los asesinatos. El tiroteo tuvo lugar en un estudio de danza cerca de un festival del Año Nuevo Lunar.

    La gobernadora de Nueva York, Kathy Hochul, dijo que está “desconsolada por el horrible tiroteo en Monterey Park, California” en un tuit el domingo.

    “En lo que debería ser un momento de celebración del Año Nuevo Lunar, el flagelo de la violencia armada ha golpeado a otra comunidad; debemos poner fin a estas tragedias sin sentido”, agregó la gobernadora.

    La masacre ocurrió en un estudio de baile cuando se celebraba cerca un festival del Año Nuevo Lunar. La policía aún no ha compartido detalles específicos sobre la naturaleza de la reunión en el estudio.

    Monterey Park canceló sus eventos del Año Nuevo Lunar programados para el domingo.

    La seccional del FBI en Los Ángeles trabaja con la Oficina de Homicidios del Departamento del Sheriff del Condado de Los Ángeles, la Policía de Monterey Park y otras agencias mientras investigan el tiroteo masivo que mató al menos a 10 personas el sábado por la noche.

    La "Oficina de Homicidios del alguacil trabaja en estrecha colaboración con el jefe Scott Wiese y su agencia en el Departamento de Policía de Monterey Park", dijo el domingo el capitán de homicidios de LASD, Andrew Meyer.

    “Trabajamos con la Oficina de Servicios de Emergencia del Gobernador de California, la Oficina Federal de Investigaciones de Los Ángeles y muchas otras agencias de aplicación de la ley”, agregó.

    El tiroteo masivo del sábado en Monterey Park, California, tuvo lugar en el Star Ballroom Dance Studio, según un análisis de CNN.

    El capitán del Departamento del Sheriff de Los Ángeles, Andrew Meyer, indicó en una conferencia de prensa que el tiroteo tuvo lugar en un negocio local en la cuadra 100 de West Garvey Avenue en el centro de Monterey Park. Más tarde identificó el negocio como un estudio de baile.

    CNN geolocalizó una foto tomada el sábado por la noche justo después del tiroteo, publicada en las redes sociales, desde el interior del Star Ballroom Dance Studio.

    En esa foto se ven al menos dos individuos tirados en el suelo. Se ve a otro individuo desplomado, sentado en un sofá.

    Se desconoce hasta el momento el motivo del sospechoso tras el tiroteo masivo que dejó al menos 10 muertos en Monterey Park, California, según el capitán Andrew Meyer del Departamento del Sheriff del condado de Los Ángeles.

    Meyer no proporcionó una descripción del sospechoso en una conferencia de prensa.

    “Todo lo que dicen es que era un hombre que estuvo aquí anoche alrededor de las 10:22 p.m. y comenzó a disparar”, informó Camila Bernal de CNN.

    "Todo lo que puedo decirles es que se usó un arma de fuego", afirmó Meyer a los periodistas, pero no proporcionó detalles sobre el tipo de arma utilizada.

    El incidente del tiroteo ocurrió la noche del sábado cerca del área del festival del Año Nuevo Lunar de Monterey Park, que estaba programado para llevarse a cabo hasta las 9 p.m. hora local en la avenida Garvey, entre las avenidas Garfield y Alhambra.

    El evento que estaba programado para extenderse hasta el domingo ahora fue cancelado, según el jefe de policía de Monterey Park, Scott Weise. “Por precaución y reverencia por las víctimas, cancelamos el evento que tendrá lugar más tarde hoy. El festival Lunar aquí en Monterey Park ha sido cancelado”, dijo a los periodistas en una conferencia de prensa.

    Los eventos anteriores del Año Nuevo Lunar en la ciudad han atraído multitudes estimadas en más de 100.000 personas de todo el sur de California, según la ciudad. No está claro cuántas personas aún estaban reunidas en el área cuando ocurrieron los disparos.

    Monterey Park es una ciudad en el Valle de San Gabriel del condado de Los Ángeles, aproximadamente a 11 km del centro de Los Ángeles.

    La comunidad de Monterey Park es 65,6% asiática, según datos de 2020 del sitio web de la ciudad.

    La edad promedio en el vecindario es de 43,1 años, agrega el sitio web.

    Es demasiado pronto en la investigación para saber si el sospechoso conocía a alguna de las víctimas o si se trataba de un tiroteo dirigido, dijo la policía.

    "Analizaremos todos los ángulos en cuanto a si se trata de un crimen de odio o no. Es demasiado pronto para saberlo en la investigación", dijo el capitán Andrew Meyer, del Departamento del Sheriff del condado de Los Ángeles.

    Al menos diez personas murieron en un tiroteo masivo en Monterey Park, California, según el Departamento del Sheriff del condado de Los Ángeles.

    El tiroteo masivo del sábado en Monterey Park, California, tuvo lugar en el Star Ballroom Dance Studio, según un análisis de CNN, que geolocalizó una foto tomada el sábado por la noche justo después del tiroteo, publicada en las redes sociales, desde el interior del Star Ballroom Dance Studio.

    En esa foto se ven al menos dos individuos tirados en el suelo. Se ve a otro individuo desplomado, sentado en un sofá.

    El sospechoso del tiroteo masivo "huyó de la escena y sigue en fuga", dijo Meyer. Instó a cualquiera que tenga información sobre este incidente a "llamar al departamento de homicidios del sheriff de Los Ángeles al 323-890-5500. O si prefiere permanecer en el anonimato, llame a Crime Stoppers al 800-222-8477".

    Los agentes respondieron poco después de las 10:22 p.m. hora local, respondió a un negocio local.

    Meyer actualizó las cifras anteriores para decir que diez personas murieron en el tiroteo y al menos otras diez resultaron heridas y fueron trasladadas a hospitales del área.

    "Agentes del Departamento de Policía de Monterey Park respondieron a un negocio local en la cuadra 100 de West Garvey Avenue en la ciudad de Monterey Park con respecto a una llamada por disparos".

    Cuando los agentes llegaron a la escena, vieron a numerosas personas, clientes del lugar, "corriendo" y "gritando".

    Un comunicado de prensa anterior del Departamento de la Oficina del Sheriff del Condado de Los Ángeles dijo que el tiroteo masivo había cobrado la vida de 9 personas.

    El móvil del sospechoso no está claro. Meyer no proporcionó una descripción del sospechoso en una conferencia de prensa. “Todo lo que dicen es que era un hombre que estuvo aquí anoche alrededor de las 10:22 p.m. y comenzó a disparar”, informó Camila Bernal de CNN.

    "Todo lo que puedo decirles es que se usó un arma de fuego", dijo Meyer a los periodistas, pero no proporcionó detalles sobre el tipo de arma utilizada.

that email Klain walks to the South Lawn of the White House to attend an event celebrating the confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court in Washington on Apr 8 2022 The job of

for his Build Back Better agenda had failed Klain wanted to quit Whipple said Biden was on his way to the UN climate summit in Glasgow empty handed when Whipple visited Klain at the White House Ron

javelins that are thrown the president s way said Cohen And that s one thing that Ron Klain uses Twitter for Klain is widely respected in Democratic circles but often reviled on the right with some Republicans referring to him as Prime Minister Klain suggesting he was the unelected powerful puppet master pulling the strings behind Biden He was also known to run a tight ship with limited leaks He was more prepared for the job than most having worked under nine former chiefs of staff and having served as the chief of staff to two vice presidents Al Gore from 1995 1999 and Biden himself from

    Biden is getting a new chief of staff. Jeff Zients will replace Ron Klain

    Biden is getting a new chief of staff. Jeff Zients will replace Ron Klain

    Jeff Zients removes his mask in this file photo from April 13, 2021. President Biden has decided to choose his former COVID-19 response coordinator as his new chief of staff, replacing Ron Klain.

    President Biden has selected Jeff Zients as his next chief of staff, choosing his former COVID-19 response coordinator to take over from Ron Klain, who is preparing to leave the White House sometime after the State of Union address on Feb. 7.

    The transition comes after two years where the administration notched some significant legislative wins, but ahead of two years of looming investigations from Congress and a special counsel.

    The news of the shift came on a weekend rocked by the extraordinary revelation that the FBI had spent more than 12 hours going through Biden's personal belongings in his Wilmington, Del. home, finding more classified documents.

    A special counsel probe into the classified documents found in Biden's personal files — some from his years as vice president, others dating back to his time as a senator — is one of the immediate challenges that will face the White House as Zients takes over.

    The White House has been criticized for its uneven public disclosure in the matter, even as Biden has been defiant that he has "no regrets" about how the issue has been handled.

    Zients will manage the White House as Biden weighs whether to make good on his intention to seek a second term in office, and as the White House prepares to face a series of congressional investigations on issues ranging from the business dealings and personal problems of Biden's son Hunter, to the migrant crisis at the southern U.S. border.

    In this file photo, Jeff Zients — then the COVID-19 response coordinator, stands with other members of Biden's inner circle: adviser Mike Donilon, chief of staff Ron Klain, and adviser Anita Dunn.

    Biden's pick of Zients, first reported by The Washington Post, was confirmed by two sources familiar with the decision who spoke on condition of anonymity because the White House has not yet commented on the upcoming departure of Klain. The exact date for the transition is not clear.

    Zients, an early hire on Biden's transition team, developed the strategy unveiled on Inauguration Day to get Americans vaccinated for COVID-19. He led the response until April 2022, and has close ties to Biden's other top advisers and cabinet members.

    A management consultant before he entered public service during the Obama administration, Zients was the acting head of the Office Management and Budget when he was pulled in to the push to fix the healthcare.gov website in 2013.

    Zients told author Chris Whipple for his new book The Fight of His Life: Inside Joe Biden's White House that being able to deliver on plans is key. "A lot of time, energy and creativity go into making policy, whether that's legislation or executive action," Zients said in the book. "But sometimes in government, not enough time and energy and creativity go into execution."

    Ron Klain walks with Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin to see President Biden sign the Inflation Reduction Act into law on Aug. 16, 2022.

    Zients will be charged with making sure the White House implements several sprawling pieces of legislation — the pieces of Biden's agenda that Klain, a powerful, behind-the-scenes manager, helped usher through Congress.

    Klain worked closely with Democrats to get sweeping spending bills for COVID aid, infrastructure, semiconductor manufacturing and climate incentives through Congress — and helped the party defy the odds and maintain control of the Senate in the midterm elections.

    His victories came despite the president's own stubbornly low approval ratings. Klain's leadership was sometimes second-guessed, particularly after the tumultuous withdrawal from Afghanistan, and amid persistently high inflation.

    Author Chris Whipple, who spoke with Klain for his new book, and has studied White House chiefs of staff, said Klain stands out as one of the most successful chiefs in recent history.

    "His greatest asset is his relationship with Joe Biden," said Whipple. "You have to be able to work closely with the president. You have to be able to manage him. You can't really be too close to him. You can't be a friend because you have to be able to tell him what he doesn't want to hear in a decisive moment. And that's a very fine balancing act. And I think Ron Klain has been able to do it."

    Klain felt vindicated by the election results, Whipple said, describing an email he received from the chief of staff at 1:16 a.m. after it was clear Democrats did far better than expected. "Maybe we don't suck as much as people thought," Klain said in that email.

    Klain walks to the South Lawn of the White House to attend an event celebrating the confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court in Washington on Apr. 8, 2022.

    The job of chief of staff is all-consuming. "There's a reason why the average tenure of a White House chief is 18 months," Whipple said.

    In October 2021, a low point in Biden's presidency when it seemed that his push for his 'Build Back Better' agenda had failed, Klain wanted to quit, Whipple said. Biden was on his way to the UN climate summit in Glasgow, empty-handed, when Whipple visited Klain at the White House.

    "Ron said to me at that point that he was exhausted and he was thinking about leaving," Whipple said. "That's how relentless and grueling and exhausting that job can be."

    But Klain's wife Monica Medina — a high-ranking State Department official who works on climate and environment portfolios — convinced him to stay on, Whipple said. He said Klain concluded he needed to see Biden through the midterms.

    White House chief of staff Ron Klain speaks during a TV interview on the driveway of the White House on March 1, 2022.

    Klain is a prolific user of Twitter, describing the platform as his "hobby." David Cohen, a political scientist at the University of Akron who studies chiefs of staff, said Klain uses Twitter to defend and promote his boss.

    "One of the roles of a chief of staff, is to essentially catch the javelins that are thrown the president's way," said Cohen. "And that's one thing that Ron Klain uses Twitter for."

    Klain is widely respected in Democratic circles, but often reviled on the right, with some Republicans referring to him as "Prime Minister Klain" — suggesting he was the unelected powerful puppet master pulling the strings behind Biden.

    He was also known to run a tight ship with limited leaks. He was more prepared for the job than most, having worked under nine former chiefs of staff, and having served as the chief of staff to two vice presidents: Al Gore from 1995-1999 and Biden himself from 2009-2011.

    He had worked for Biden on and off for decades, starting his political career as an intern in Biden's Senate office.

    Zients, who has strong relationships in the business community, does not tweet. During his time as the COVID response coordinator, he presided over heavily scripted updates on Zoom to outline how the administration was making progress on its vaccination goals.

    Zients has close ties to Biden and his inner circle, but is viewed as someone who will leave the political part of the job to other long-time Biden advisers — including Klain, who is expected to remain involved from outside the White House.

    10 people have been killed in a shooting near LA after a Lunar New Year festival

    Police gather at the scene of a mass shooting in Monterey Park, Calif., over the weekend.

    At least 10 people were killed and 10 others were wounded in a shooting Saturday evening in a city east of Los Angeles, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said.

    The gunfire was reported around 10:22 p.m. local time inside a Chinese-owned ballroom dance studio on West Garvey Avenue in Monterey Park.

    Local police arrived to find "individuals pouring out of the location," LA County Sheriff's Department's Captain Andrew Meyer said in a news conference on Sunday early morning.

    At least 10 people were taken to area hospitals with conditions ranging from stable to critical.

    Local authorities are looking for a man who fled after the shooting. Police are also investigating a possible second scene in Alhambra, about two miles north of Monterey Park.

    Meyer did not give further details about the shooter or possible motive. He added that it was unclear whether the shooting was a targeted hate crime.

    The FBI and state authorities are also involved in the investigation.

    Over 59,000 people live in Monterey Park, 65 percent of whom identify as Asian, according to the Census Bureau.

    The attack occurred at the end of the first day of a two-day street festival to celebrate Lunar New Year. The event, which began on the eve of Lunar New Year, is one of the largest free street fairs in Southern California, typically drawing crowds of over 100,000 visitors and over a hundred food vendors, performances and merchants.

    Monterey Park Police said the festival has been canceled because of the shooting.

    At Least 10 Killed in Shooting Near L.A.

    At least 10 others were injured, some of them critically, and the gunman was still at large, the authorities said. The shooting occurred in Monterey Park, Calif., which earlier held festivities on the eve of the Lunar New Year.

    At least 10 people were killed in a shooting late Saturday in Monterey Park, Calif., just east of Los Angeles, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

    At least 10 other people were injured, some of them critically, Capt. Andrew Meyer of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told reporters early Sunday. He said the shooting took place in a ballroom dance venue.

    The gunman was still at large, the sheriff’s department said. The F.B.I. and other law enforcement agencies were involved in the investigation, it said.

    The shooting occurred around 10:20 p.m. on West Garvey Avenue, a main thoroughfare that earlier in the day had hosted a festival celebrating the eve of the Lunar New Year, a major holiday in many Asian communities. Previous festivals have drawn tens of thousands of people.

    The second day of the Lunar New Year festival, which had been scheduled to take place on Sunday, was canceled, the authorities said.

    Monterey Park, with a population of around 60,000 people, is around 65 percent Asian American and 27 percent Hispanic or Latino, according to government data. The city, which lies about seven miles east of downtown Los Angeles, was the first in the continental United States to have a majority of residents with Asian ancestry, as communities of immigrants from Taiwan, mainland China, Japan and Vietnam settled there.

    According to local businesses, the area is typically quiet, with very little violence or commotion. There have been no previous cases of “murder and non-negligent manslaughter,” according to F.B.I. records.

    President Biden has been briefed on the shooting by the U.S. homeland security adviser, Karine Jean-Pierre, the White House spokeswoman, said on Twitter.

    The President has been briefed by the Homeland Security Advisor on the mass shooting in Monterey Park. He directed her to make sure that the FBI is providing full support to local authorities, and to update him regularly today as more details are known.

    The shooting in Monterey Park comes less than a week after six people were killed in central California when two gunmen stormed a home in Tulare County. Among those killed were a 16-year-old mother and her 10-month-old child. The police said they believed that attack was gang related.

    The shooting happened at a ballroom dance venue, Captain Meyer said. “When officers arrived on the scene, they observed numerous individuals, patrons of the location, pouring out of the location, screaming,” he said.

    Capt. Meyer said the authorities were investigating whether the shooting was racially motivated. “We will look at every angle as far as whether it was a hate crime or not,” he said.

    At least 10 people were injured in the shooting and being treated at local hospitals, Capt. Andrew Meyer of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told reporters on Sunday morning, in the first news conference given by the authorities since the shooting took place.

    The shooting took place on West Garvey Avenue, part of the downtown area of Monterey Park, which is home to an array of Asian-owned businesses, including restaurants and grocery stores.

    10 dead in shooting in Monterey Park, Calif.; gunman on the run

    A gunman is at large after killing at least 10 people in Monterey Park, Calif., just east of Los Angeles, on Saturday, the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department said, on a night of Lunar New Year festivities in the area.

    At least 10 others were taken to hospitals “and are listed in various conditions from stable to critical,” Capt. Andrew Meyer of the sheriff’s department said at a news conference early Sunday.

    The gunman fled the scene, Meyer added, and the motive for the shooting was not immediately clear.

    Monterey Park Police Department officers encountered “numerous victims” inside the local business where the attack took place, as well as in the business’s parking lot, according to an update from Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. The exact number of victims seen in each area was not disclosed.

    “When officers arrived at the location, they observed numerous victims and patrons in the parking lot of the business. Additional officers made entry into the business and located numerous gunshot victims,” law enforcement officials said.

    President Biden is aware of the mass killing in Monterey Park, Calif., and has been briefed by homeland security adviser Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, the White House said Sunday.

    Biden directed Sherwood-Randall “to make sure that the FBI is providing full support to local authorities, and to update him regularly today as more details are known,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in a tweet.

    As news reports emerged of the mass killing in Monterey Park, Calif., local officials reacted with horror and extended offers of help and support.

    “I am in a state of shock, heartbreak and devastation,” wrote Sasha Renée Pérez, mayor of nearby Alhambra, which is separated from Monterey Park by the El Monte Busway and sent law enforcement officials to assist in the shooting response. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their loved ones. Our community stands ready to do whatever we can to support all those impacted,” she added.

    Law enforcement officials say they saw screaming people running to escape when they arrived at the scene of the shooting in Monterey Park, Calif., on Saturday night.

    “When officers arrived on scene, they observed numerous individuals, patrons at the location, pouring out of the location screaming,” Capt. Andrew Meyer of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said at a news conference.

    “The officers made entry to the location and located additional victims,” he said.

    He described the local business as a “ballroom dance location,” but did not provide its name or address.

    Ten people were pronounced dead on the scene by fire department officials following Saturday night’s shooting in Monterey Park, Calif., Capt. Andrew Meyer of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said Sunday.

    “The suspect fled the scene and remains outstanding,” Meyer said at a news conference.

    Deputy Sheriff Tracy Koerner, also of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, told The Washington Post that authorities are “looking into every aspect of this” and that the motive behind the attack was not yet clear.

    The Saturday night shooting in Monterey Park, where at least 65 percent of the population is Asian, took place near a Lunar New Year festival that was scheduled to end around 9 p.m.

    According to the city’s website, previous Lunar New Year events have drawn crowds estimated at over 100,000 people. The event was slated to include gift vendors, food booths, rides and live entertainment as visitors celebrated the arrival of the Year of the Rabbit.

    Also referred to as Chinese New Year or Spring Festival, Lunar New Year is one of the most important holidays in large parts of Asia. This year, the festival is being recognized in California for the first time as an official state holiday.

    Why US Department of Justice dey search home of di president

    US Department of Justice (DoJ) investigators don find six more secret documents for di house of President Joe Biden for Delaware afta dem search di house for 13-hour according to one oga Biden lawyer.

    Some documents wey dem seize for im Wilmington property on Friday na from di time wen e be senator and odas from im tenure as vice-president under Barack Obama.

    Lawyer Bob Bauer say di investigators also carry "personally handwritten notes" and "surrounding materials".

    Oga Biden and im wife no dey present.

    Dis mata dey come afta oga Biden predecessor, Donald Trump, face im own justice department investigate say e carry sensitive materials go im Florida estate, Mar-a-Lago, afta im presidency.

    However, President Biden bin grant access "to im house to allow DoJ conduct search for di entire premises for potential vice-presidential records and potential classified material", Oga Bauer tok for inside one statement on Saturday.

    Earlier dis month, oga Biden lawyers tok say dem see di first batch of classified documents on 2 November for di Penn Biden Center, one think-tank wey di president start for Washington DC.

    Dem discover di second batch of records on 20 December for di garage of im Wilmington home, dem also see anoda document for one storage space for di house on 12 January, im lawyers tok.

    Afta dem see di documents, di president say im team immediately hand dem over to di National Archives and di Justice Department.

    E neva dey clear why Mr Biden keep dem.

    President Joe Biden tok say e surprise to learn for November say dem discover secret files for im former private office.

    "I no know wetin dey di documents," e tok.

    Mr Biden say im no dey wetin dey di recovered papers.

    And until we know more about wetin dem contain, e go dey difficult to state exactly how serious dis be. Some details, however, don begin to comot.

    Sources tell CNN and di New York Times say di first set of 10 classified documents include briefing materials on foreign kontris – wey include Ukraine, Iran and United Kingdom - from Mr Biden time as vice-president.

    And according to CNN, dem mix dis documents wit oda non-classified papers, wey include details about di funeral of Beau Biden, di president son, wey die for 2015.

    Dem also report say some of di documents dey labelled as top secret, di highest level of classification.

    For di second set of documents. Mr Biden personal lawyer issue one statement wey tok say di files na "Obama-Biden Administration records" wey mean say e date back to im eight years as vice-president.

    Afta dem see di documents, di president say im team immediately hand dem ova give di National Archives plus di Justice Department.

    E no dey clear why Mr Biden bin hide dem.

    Under di Presidential Records Act, White House records suppose go di National Archives once one administration end, where dem go fit secure dem well-well.

    Dem don appoint one special counsel, Robert Hur, to lead di investigation into how dem handle di sensitive documents.

    Di long search and subsequent discovery of more documents na political headache for di president, as e dey prepare to declare whether e go run for a second term for 2024.

    Oga Biden and im wife, Jill, dey spend di weekend for coastal town of Rehoboth Beach for Delaware, wia dem get another house.

    Dem bin search di house earlier dis month and no see any documents for there, im lawyers tok according to di New York Times.

    Di two-month gap between di first Biden discovery – wey happun days before di midterm elections - and wen di news enta public for January don raise awkward questions for di president about transparency, BBC North America correspondent Anthony Zurcher tok.

    Mr Biden team insist say di president cooperate fully wit di DoJ inquiry.

    Mr Biden bin play down di affair say na oversight. E say im "no get regrets" say im no publicly disclose di discovery of some classified files before di November midterm elections.

    Di discovery dey come as former US President Donald Trump dey also face probe over im alleged mishandling of hundreds of classified documents for im Florida Mar-a-Lago residence and im alleged failure to comply wit a subpoena.

    Oga Trump and im lawyers bin no gree handover di documents until di FBI raid im Florida holiday home last August.

    He allege say dem di FBI dey favour President Biden wit di way dem dey treat am.
