"A Chinese-born gunman motivated by hatred against Taiwan chained shut the doors of a California church and hid firebombs before opening fire on a gathering of mainly of elderly Taiwanese parishioners, killing a man who tackled him to save possibly dozens of lives, authorities said Monday," the AP reports.
From AP, "Authorities: Hate against Taiwanese led to church attack":
David Chou, 68, of Las Vegas drove to Orange County on Saturday and the next day attended a lunch held by Irvine Taiwanese Presbyterian Church, which worships at Geneva Presbyterian Church in the community of Laguna Woods. Though he knew no one there, he spent about an hour mingling with about 40 attendees and executed his plot, authorities said at a news conference."Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes said the briefing that the was shooting 'a politically motived hate incident.' Barnes said Chou, an U.S. citizen from China, 'was upset about political tensions between China and Taiwan,'" NBC News reported.
"Don't see major Asian NGOs commenting on this, even though the attacker was motivated by racialized hate," The Intercept's Lee Fang commented on Twitter. "Any time there's a hate crime that has a bit of moral complexity that falls outside of simplistic oppressor-oppressed narratives, they fall silent."
It will be interesting to see whether the FBI dedicates as many resources to investigating this shooting as the one in Buffalo.
