Video shows violent struggle as Monterey Park shooter is disarmed

New surveillance video shows the violent struggle between the suspected Monterey Park gunman and the 26-year-old man who disarmed him at the Lai Lai Ballroom late Saturday night.

Twenty to 30 minutes after the Monterey Park shooting that left 11 people dead, authorities say 72-year-old Huu Can Tran entered the Lai Lai Ballroom in nearby Alhambra armed with what officials described as a magazine-fed semi-automatic pistol that had an extended, large capacity magazine attached to it.

That’s where Brandon Tsay, a third-generation operator of the family-run dance hall, wrestled the gun away from the suspect.

Security video shows the terrifying moments as the suspect and Tsay are seen wrestling for the weapon. As Tsay manages to remove the gun from Tran’s grip, Tran is seen punching Tsay while lunging for the weapon.

Tran continues assaulting Tsay before he finally gives up. Tsay appears to yell at the suspect, telling him to leave the building.
