Gunman Shoots Immigrants Taking Citizenship Test in Upstate New York, Killing at Least 13
A gunman opened fire on immigrants taking a citizenship exam in upstate New York Friday, killing as many as a dozen people before committing suicide, officials said.
The bloodbath killed at least 13 including the 41-year-old gunman, who is of Asian descent and lived in the Binghamton suburb of Johnson City. Officials warned that the death toll could rise.
Voong, who also goes by the name Linh Phat Voong, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, a local law enforcement official told The Associated Press.
Voong blocked the back door of the building with his car, then stormed in through the front entrance about 10:30 a.m. while firing a high-powered gun. Several people were taken hostage.
The gunman wore a bright green nylon jacket and dark-rimmed glasses as he executed victim after victim, according to local media. His body was found on first floor with a hunting knife jammed into the waistband of his pants, the reports said.
Monster. No use for further words.
