He was a former dance instructor at one of the dance studios, according to the police.

Police issued a search warrant to the suspect’s house and seeks of the motive of this heinous crime. His ex-wife doesn’t want to let her name known but reported to CNN, that she met him at the dance studio, and that he was a very hot-tempered dance instructor at the studio. She told CNN that Tran came from China. The Asian American community was shocked by this massacre; most of the residents that frequented those dance studios are well over 50 years old and had enjoyed dancing as a routine way to enjoy their lives.
