Whilst tussle unfolded, Huu Can Tran landed a number of punches to Brandon Tsay’s head area – showing a surprising dexterity and youthful vigour for some one of his advanced years – before finally ‘giving-up’ and walking away with only a casual glance backwards to see if he is about to be shot in the back! Huu Can Tran seems calm and set on achieving some kind of ‘mission’! Around three-hours later, Huu Can Tran would take his own life whilst sat in his own white van following a stand-off with the US Police!

Huu Can Tran’s killing spree was just one of two mass shootings that occurred in California within three-days that involved the Asian community of the US! (In the US the term ‘Asian’ refers to Chinese, Koreans, Japanese, Vietnamese and Filipino, etc, whereas in the UK the term ‘Asian’ refers to what Americans call ‘East Indians’). On the afternoon of January 23rd (2023), a shooting occurred in the Half Moon Bay area of San Francisco Bay, California, USA. This incident killed at least seven people and seriously injuring one.
According to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office, at around 2:22 p.m. that day – four victims were found dead in the 12700 block of Cabrillo Highway – with another victim taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries. Later, three more victims were found dead at another location in the area. The report revealed that the suspect in the shooting was one – Zhao Chun Li – a 67-year-old Half Moon Bay resident. He was arrested at around 16:40 on the same day after the police found weapons in his car. Half Moon Bay District Councilman Debbie Rudock said – according to NBC – the victims of the mass shooting were Asian labourers working on the nearby farm. At present, there is no known motive for these killings, but this is the second mass killing in three days in California involving Asian perpetuators and Asian victims!
A Chinese-American man (who has never handled a gun in his life) – single-handedly took-on the determined mass murderer (Vietnamese migrant Huu Can Tran) – in the foyer of the Lai Lai Ballroom and Studio situated in the Alhambra area of California! Just minutes earlier, Huu Can Tran had used his Cobray Mac11 Sub-Machine Pistol (discharging at least twenty bullets from the 30-round magazine) against numerous innocent Asian men and women (aged between 50-60 years old) – who had gathered to celebrate Chinese New Year at the Star Ballroom and Dance Studio situated in nearby Monterey Park. Indeed, Alhambra is situated just 2.28 miles (3.22 km) North of Monterey Park.
