Four Dead, One Critically Wounded in Home Invasion
With no real motive or clear explanation in immediate reach, investigators are trying to understand what made a man enter a Sacramento home and kill four people. With four wrongful deaths on the suspect’s hands, questions of “What made him do it?” and “Why would he do it” are floating about. Many wonder whether the shooting was gang-related.
Purposely inflicting personal injury on a victim or causing wrongful deaths is never acceptable. The killing of an innocent life is seen as harsh and brutal, often as heartless. Dealing with the aftermath of an overwhelming injury or death event takes a heavy toll on an individual. Often victims and survivors will ask “Why did it happen?” and sadly, that question sometimes goes unanswered.
Gunfire was fired on Saturday night, June 9 in a Sacramento home as reports were called in to the police station. One man, the suspect, entered a residential home and shot at the people present. Police officers believe the attack to be a home invasion but could not confirm if that was the case since there were no signs of a forceful entry.
A husband and wife were killed during the shooting while their son confronted and shot at the home intruder. The suspect is currently in critical yet stable condition as of Sunday, June 10. The two other guests in the home were also attacked and shot. One victim in the shooting was critically wounded while four other victims were found dead. The husband and wife are believed to be in their 50s while another victim is said to be in the mid-20s. No other names or information have been released yet.
The last two bodies were removed from the home on Sunday night, June 10. About half a dozen rifles were also seen being carried out by crime scene investigators. The weapons were put in a police van.
Neighbors have claimed that they did not hear the shootings. One male claimed he thought he had heard fireworks but did not think anything of it. It wasn’t until the police arrived at the scene of the crime that neighbors realized something unusual had happened.
Gang violence has long been associated with the Hmong community. The husband who was shot and killed was known as a shaman, a faith healer, in the Hmong community.
While gang violence is very unnecessary, experiencing a wrongful death of a loved one is also a grievous and traumatic event to live through. The victims in this brutal home invasion were subjected to wrongful deaths by the suspect.
