The man who heroically prevented a mass shooting in a tense struggle says: “It was a primal instinct”

The 26-year-old coder, who took turns watching the front door of his family’s dance studio, had no idea what was going to happen as the Lunar New Year celebration drew to a close on Saturday night at the Lai Lai Ballroom & Studio in the Alahambra. California.

Then Brandon Cey heard metal hitting metal and turned to see a man holding a gun. New York Times.

“He looked at me and looked around, not hiding that he was trying to harm. His eyes were menacing,” Tsai said on Sunday.

The gun was signal that it was not a robbery.

“From the way it was built and configured, I knew it was not for stealing money. Judging by his body language, facial expression, eyes, he was looking for people.”

Tsai began to fight the militant for gun control.

“At that moment it was a primal instinct. Something happened there. I don’t know what came over me,” he said.

Tsai explained ABC that his call to action was when the man “began to prepare the weapon”.

“Something came over me. I realized that I need to take away his weapon. I had to take this weapon, disarm it, otherwise everyone would have died.”

Brandon Tsey is a hero?

“When I mustered up the courage, I threw myself at him with both hands, grabbed a weapon, and we got into a fight. We made our way into the lobby trying to take that gun from each other. He hit me in the face, hit me on the back of the head,” he said.

Tsai said that in the end mastered weapons, pushed the man away and pointed a gun at him, yelling, “Get the hell out of here! I will shoot! Leave! Go!”

“I thought he was going to run away, but he just stood there and considered whether to fight or run. I really thought that I would have to shoot him, and he went to me. At that moment, he turned and walked out the door, jogging back to his van. I immediately called the police with a gun in my hand.”

Unknown to Cai at the time, the person later identified as Huu Kang Tran was suspect in a shootout in nearby Monterey Park that left 10 people dead and 10 wounded.

“I was shaking all night. I couldn’t believe what happened,” Tsai told ABC.

“Many people told me how much courage I had to face a situation like this. But do you know what courage is? Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the ability to be afraid of adversity when terrible events like this happen,” he said.

“In crises like this, people need courage, especially the victims, their friends, their families. My heart goes out to all involved, especially the Star Dance Studio and Monterey Park staff. I hope they find the courage and strength to endure,” he said.

Tran was later traced police, but shot himself when his white van was surrounded.

“We are still not clear on the motives,” said Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna. Los Angeles Times.

“The investigation is ongoing… We want to know how something so horrific could happen,” Luna said.
