Mr. Luna said the suspect entered the Alhambra club with a gun and was taken from him before he fled.
The shooting sparked a wave of fear in the Los Angeles-area Asian American community and cast a pall over Lunar New Year celebrations across the country. Other cities sent additional officials to oversee the festivities.
The massacre was the fifth in the country this month.
Located on the eastern edge of Los Angeles, Monterey Park has a population of about 60,000, mainly composed of Asian immigrants from China or first-generation Asian Americans.
The shooting took place in the city center where red lanterns adorn the streets for Lunar New Year celebrations. A police car was parked next to a large banner reading “Happy Year of the Rabbit!”
The celebration at Monterey Park is one of the largest in California, drawing tens of thousands of people throughout the day.
A two-day celebration is planned and as many as 100,000 people have attended in past years. But officials canceled Sunday’s event after the shooting.
Homeland Security Adviser Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall briefed U.S. President Joe Biden on the situation, the White House said.
