Authorities still have not released the name of the victim or shooter involved in deadly gunfire, in which one person died at a Chinese newspaper in Alhambra Friday morning.

South Pasadena police assisted Alhambra law enforcement at the China Press, 2121 Mission Road, in which a man was pronounced dead on the second floor of the building.

Police responded to the shooting after receiving a 9-1-1 call at about 9:30 a.m.

According to Sgt. Steve Carr of the Alhambra Police Department, officers detained four people and located a handgun. Carr said the man suffered multiple gunshot wounds.

The alleged gunman was inside the newspaper office, with Carr explaining that he and the victim worked together.

“This is being investigated as a workplace violence incident,” Carr told the media.

The motive for the shooting is still under investigation.

South Pasadena police officers rushed to the scene of a fatal shooting on Friday at a Chinese publication in Alhambra according to a SPPD dispatcher.

Assisting authorities already on the scene, the SPPD sent eight units to 2121 W. Mission Road at approximately 9:30 AM following reports of an active shooter at the China Press in Alhambra.

A man was reported shot and killed. While police say there appears to be one shooter, who was captured and arrested, several individuals were detained.

South Pasadena police assisted Alhambra officials, who responded to a 911 call from a man who said he was shot at the address for the Chinese publication.

“There’s no evidence of any other victims at this time or any other episodes of violence,” Alhambra police Sgt. Steven Carr told the San Gabriel Tribune. “This appears to be a case of workplace violence. We’re investigating the potential of a disgruntled employee versus co-worker.”
