23 guns, including assault rifle, seized from El Monte home during domestic violence investigation

EL MONTE — Police seized 23 guns, including a fully automatic assault rifle, from an El Monte home while investigating a report of domestic violence Thursday, officials said.
Caminero Wang, 40, was booked on suspicion of domestic violence as authorities looked into his possession of the 12 handguns, 10 rifles and a shotgun, El Monte police Cpl. Aram Choe said.
Among the weapons was a fully automatic M-16 rifle, as well as a semi-automatic Chinese-made copy of an AK-47 rifle called a Mak-90.
Some of the handguns were registered to Wang, while others were not, Choe added.
Officers routinely confiscate weapons from homes while investigation allegations of domestic violence, the corporal said. An investigation into the source and legality of the guns was ongoing.
The woman victimized in the domestic violence incident had been kicked, Choe said, but required no hospitalization.
