Vietnamese Immigrant responsible for Binghamtom Shootings

  • That’s truely sad. This will make Vietnamese/Asian people look extremely bad in America. You know what Kevin I think I will also go back to Vietnam for good one day.

    wth wong is not a vietnamese name, neither is “voong”. the authority should at least try to get his name straight. if they say his name is voong, then they most likely meant to say vuong. if they state that his last name is actually wong and he’s vietnamese, then he must be one of the ethnic chinese people that lived in vietnam before coming to america.

  • @Minh: I agree and I think a couple Vietnamese were his victims as well. Very sad.

    @sadsa: I agree, I figured it must have been Vuong. I think we will hear more information about him as the days pass.

    Regardless of his ethnic background, it’s a real tragedy. I think it’s irrelevant whether the Psychopath is Asian or Cauasian. And yes, Wong is certainly not a Vietnamese last name, Voong is very close to Vuong so it could be a typo. However, in the picture, the man does look Vietnamese.

    Actually, the Chinese word “Wong” means “Vuong (V??ng)” in Vietnamese.

    “She told Mr. Wong that a phone number that he could call for assistance provided information in Chinese or Japanese. She asked him if he was either one.

    “No, I’m Vietnamese!” Mr. Wong told her, before turning around and storming out.”

    Not strange enough, Wong couldn’t say Vietnamese but Chinese.
