Police arrested a Monterey Park shooting suspect Saturday during a perimeter search.

The shooting happened about 3:35 p.m. in the 300 block of South Garfield Avenue, Monterey Park police Lt. Paul Villalobos said.

“Officers responded to the scene after a shots-fired call was made,” Villalobos said. “They found one man who suffered a gunshot wound to his abdomen.” He was transported to Los Angeles County USC Medical Center, where he underwent surgery. His condition was unknown.

Monterey Park police set up a perimeter with the help of Alhambra and Montebello police and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Within the perimeter, they found and arrested a suspect.

Villalobos said the suspect, whose identity was withheld, was still being interrogated.

A motive for the shooting was not released.
