CCTV footage shows shooter being confronted by man at US dance studio
Guardian, 25 Jan 2023
CCTV footage at the Lai Lai Ballroom in California shows a shooter being confronted and disarmed. Brandon Tsay can be seen wrestling a modified 9 mm submachine gun-style weapon away from the gunman, identified by police as 72-year-old Huu Can Tran. Tran had first shot up Star Ballroom Dance Studio in Monterey Park, California, attacking dancers who were celebrating Lunar New Year's Eve on January 21.

He fatally shot 11 people and wounded nine others. Tran then traveled to Alhambra, where he entered the Lai Lai studio before being stopped in the lobby by Tsay, a computer coder who helps run the dance hall for his family. Tsay eventually commandeered the weapon and ordered Tran to 'go, get the hell out of here' and watched as he drove away in a white van.
