This is the first photo of a man police believe gunned down 10 people in a mass shooting in Los Angeles.

The horrific shooting happened after a festival for Chinese New Year in California.

Footage released to social media shows deserted, cordoned off streets in Monterey Park, about seven miles from downtown Los Angeles, after a man opened fire with a “machine gun.”

Gunshots were first heard after 10 p.m. local time near the site of a Chinese New Year party.

LA Police confirmed the gunman behind the attack on a Garvey Ave store is still at large after fleeing the scene.
