Man fatally shoots himself on busy Monrovia street, police say
The shooting took place about noon on South Myrtle Street, next to Library Park, which is the heart of the city’s redeveloped business and restaurant corridor and home to a newly built library.
Monrovia Police Sgt. Dan Verna said the shooting grew from a domestic violence incident between a man and a woman. The man reportedly shot himself during the confrontation.
“We’re still investigating,” Verna said. “The female half only speaks Mandarin Chinese and we have a translator out there.”
No one else was hurt. The woman has not been arrested. The man's name was not immediately released.
