Suspect In California Taiwanese Church Shooting Charged With Hate Crime

NBC News reported that prosecutors changed their complaint to include an additional hate crime enhancement, alleging that the suspect killed Dr. John Cheng because of “his race, color, religion, nationality, or country of origin,” per a statement by the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.

“After a review of additional evidence in this case, the Orange County District Attorney’s Office has filed an amended criminal complaint to include hate crime allegations,” District Attorney Todd Spitzer said in a statement, per the outlet.

The suspect was born in Taiwan and grew up there after his family was made to leave mainland China when communists took over. Although he was born in Taiwan and lived in Las Vegas, investigators discovered documents in his car that showed his “hatred of the Taiwanese people.”
