VALLEJO, Calif. —
A man whose family was attacked in a violent home invasion robbery showed KTVU Thursday afternoon the damage done by the triple-shooting.
Son Truong, brother and son of the shooting victims, said he was shaken up as he took KTVU around his home where just hours earlier two gunmen burst in and opened fire.
“I'm a little you know, shaken up,” Truong said. “My little brother just got shot, my mom just got shot.”
The incident happened at about 3:40 a.m. Thursday when the men broke into the home at the corner of Sloat and McDougal, near Highway 37 in Vallejo.
Truong was at work at the time, but his 21-year old brother Ken, 52-year old mother Luu and his 22-year old sister Ha, were all shot by the invaders.
“They were all carrying guns, and basically their intention was to kill everyone in the family,” Truong said. “They didn't take nothing. They didn't want no witnesses.”
The brother Ken was shot in the face, and most seriously injured.
Their mother Luu was shot in the hip, and their sister Ha was grazed in the finger, both were lying in bed.
“My mom can talk, she screams a lot because she's in pain,” Truong said. “She's OK, but I'm worried about my brother a lot because at the hospital, the doctors say he'll be in there a while.”
Police said they don’t believe the family was targeted.
“At this point, there is nothing to indicate that this was specifically targeted,” said Vallejo police Lt. Kenny Park. “There are no indications of that, so we are treating this as a random attack.”
“Our family is a hard working family,” Truong said. “Everyone works every single day. I don't know why they picked our family.”
The two shooters are described very vaguely as one Latino man and one African American man, both in their 20s, wearing dark hoodies.
They are still on the loose after this apparently random crime.
